Raynold's Beehive

-A A +A
1863. 123 Lawrence St.

This survivor of the 1874 fire became a “beehive” of activity after it was rebuilt with imported brick to house the Hazard Powder Company and its agent, J. O. Raynold. Its brick facade, front gable, and shuttered windows stand out in a town of rough stone buildings, epitomized by the granite house next door. In 1992 the Beehive became part of a three-story casino.
