Historic Ransohoff Building
Located at 1029 K street, the Ransohoff Building was constructed around 1910 for the Mohr and Yoerk Company pork curing business and deli, with the “Parkview Apartments” above.
In 1933, the building was remodeled into the Bon March department store and Moderne design elements were added. Architect George Sellon, who designed the California Western Life Building at 926 J Street, is believed to have designed the 1933 remodel of the Ransohoff’s Building.
Note the Prairie style and Moderne style influences such as wide overhanging eaves, zig-zag bands, and deco patterned accent panels, classic detailing of the era.
Most recently, the building was home to the Pyramid Brewery, from 2005 through June of 2013.
