Building History

The Manufactures Building had a semi-circular shape, its exterior ornate and made of plaster. A complex wooden support system of laminated wood arches and other wooden components stood bare for visitors to inspect. This pavilion was designed by the San Francisco firm of Howard and Galloway in association with the Seattle firm of Somervell and Cote. The Olmsted Brothers of Brookline, MA, were credited as the landscape architects for the area around the Manufactures Building. (See "Manufactures Building, Garden, Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, Seattle, Washington," Western Architect, 07/1909, vol. 14, plate following p. 6.)

The Manufactures Building and the Agriculture Building stood across from each other, the former on the east side of a round central fountain, the latter to the west.

Demolished in 1918.
