The Seattle Sunday Times of 08/16/1906 noted of the Wilson Building: "The top price was paid for frontage on Rainier Avenue, the principal business thoroughfare of Georgetown, when Mrs. Anna E. Horton purchased of Councilman Roy Wilson a property adjoining the Wilson brick block to the north for $7,000. It has a frontage of fifty feet, with a depth of thirty-five feet on the south and running to a point on the north, making a triangular plot with an average depth of seventeen and one-half feet. The price per front foot was $140. A frame building, occupied by a restaurant and a shoemaker's shop, is on the property." (See "August Keeps up Fast Pace in Realty Trading," Seattle Sunday Times, 08/19/1906, p. 42.)
