Notes

Building/structure dates: 1899 initial construction
Significance: The 1890 formation of the American Tobacco Co. led to major changes in tobacco manufacture and trade. Gaining control of the vast majority of American smoking tobacco production, the American Tobacco Co. coordinated local manufacturing plants and processes into a national network of tobacco production. The coordinated operation of the company led to a careful assessment and redesign of, among other things, the storage and aging facilities for smoking tobacco.
