This was later known as the Stone & Murphy Building, the Murphy Brothers and Beall Building, the Louisville Furniture Company, and the Harris Furniture Company. In 1937, the rear portion of the building was sold to the City of Louisville to house the city’s offices, a fire station, and jail. It remains the most distinctive commercial building downtown, thanks to a recent restoration by Jonathan Barnhart.
