Building History

The short-lived firm of Fisher and Clark designed three known buildings, the James and Hastings Building, Port Townsend, WA (1888-1889), the Colman Building #1, Seattle, WA (1887), and the Korn Building #1 (1886-1889). Fisher and Clark designed the building for Moses Korn, a pharmacist.


The Korn Building #1 burned about less than a year after its completion in the Great Fire of 1889.
