This building was originally a branch store of the O. J. Morrison Company. The architect, Levi Dean, was essentially the company architect for the department store chain. His Logan commission was unusual because it was built as a combination store and office building. The store occupied the basement and first and second floors, while the upper three stories were rented as offices. The building, faced with dark red tapestry brick on a steel frame, now houses a bank.
