GS Sanborn Building information
The GS Sanborn Building is Ballard’s only example of Romanesque architecture, a style that was popular on the East Coast in the 1880s. It has a sandstone face and a third-story arch, and housed some of Ballard’s key businesses in the early 1900s, including a department store.
