Building History

The Drury Building was erected by Charles F. Drury (d. 1942) and has housed many stores, offices and the Lincolnshire Hotel, which closed in 1995. The Lincolnshire Hotel was named for Charles's Drury's county birthplace in England. The Tacoma architectural firm, Heath, Gove and Bell, collaborated with Albertson, Cornell Bros. & Walsh, building contractors, who erected the Drury/Lincolnshire Building.

Storefronts between 112-118 South 9th Streeet housed Tacoma's ticket offices of four major railroads--the Northern Pacific, Great Northern, Union Pacific and Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul--from 1926 until the 1970s.
