Notes
Survey number HABS NE-35
Building/structure dates: 1919 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1926 subsequent work
Significance: Built in 1919-20, the M.E. Smith Building is significant as an unusually well-designed industrial structure in which new structural advancements and architectural styling were used to produce a better-lighted, safer structure. Its association with M.E. Smith and Company, a very important dry goods firm in the area, contribute to its significance as do the health and child care facilities provided in it which demonstrate an important, early interest in employee welfare.
