Notes
Survey number HABS OR-111
Building/structure dates: 1872 initial construction
Significance: The Orth Building occupies a site which was occupied earlier by the Eagle Brewery, the City Brewery, and a number of smaller buildings. An 1857 deed for an adjacent parcel refers to the boundary between that lot and "Holman's House." On the Kuchel and Dressel lithograph of Jacksonville published in 1856, a J.J. Holman is identified as the owner of the Eagle Brewery. As early as 1859, however, Holman's Eagle Brewery was located on the east side of Oregon Street, south of Pine Street, for in that year it was purchased by Joseph Wetterer, who had sold his City Brewery to Viet Schutz. It is quite possible, therefore, that the building on the west side of Oregon Street was not a brewery, but a saloon or store. In later years, the building on the west side of the street became part of the City Brewery - -although Schutz apparently rented it to a number of businesses, including a Chinese laundry.
