Notes
Survey number HABS WA-169
Significance: Category 1 building in the Ballard Avenue Landmark District, a well preserved commercial section of an historic neighborhood community. / The J.C. Penney Department Store is a typical brick building in a linear district of modest scale commercial buildings lining Ballard's historic main street. It contained one of the numerous hotels built along Ballard Avenue between the turn of the century and the First World War. Its irregular shape too is characteristic of buildings on block corners in the area which resulted from peculiarities of the plot.
