GS Sanborn Building

Historic Building in Ballard & Discovery Park

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 3rd-story arch, and housed some of Ballard’s key businesses in the early 1900s, including a department store. It dates from 1901.
