The Winton Company Building #2 also had the addresses 1107 East Pine Street and 1530-1534 11th Avenue.


The commercial building at 1107 Pine Street was built in 1916 to the designs of Henderson Ryan. The Winton Company, the local franchise of a Cleveland-based automobile manufacturer, commissioned Ryan to build the three-story dealership. It was owned by The Winton Company from 1916 until it burned on Halloween night, 1925. Winton went out of passenger car business in 1924 and this building got a new tenant in 1922, the Miller-Norton Company, another automobile dealer. Miller-Norton sold Chandler and Maxwell cars and lost approximately $111,000 worth of tools, auto parts and cars in the fire. The building itself was estimated at a $50,000 loss.

This brick-faced building had three stories between 1916-1925. When it was rebuilt by other architects in early 1926, it rose only two stories.


The Winton Company Building burned on 10/31/1925.
