Northeast corner of Mercer Street and Bismarck Street, later known as Terry Avenue.

Lumberman David T. Denny (1832-1903) erected this lumber mill in 1882; to facilitate the transportation of logs to his mill (by floating them), he dug an early canal connecting Lake Union to Lake Washington, before the Montlake Cut of the 1910s.

In 1890, the Western Mill Company had its main operations on the northeast corner of Mercer Street and Bismarck Street (renamed Terry Avenue).
