Historical Photo: 03/09/2020

Do you recognize this facility? This circa-1905 image is of the final Straub Brothers Candy Factory building at the corner of Front and Hall streets in Traverse City. The building still stands today, now housing several businesses and condominiums. These images are provided by the Traverse Area Historical Society in collaboration with the Traverse Area District Library. Please email any questions to contact@traversehistory.org. This photo and the one printed in the following week are part of a series of plaques titled “Then & Now” developed by TAHS, TADL and the Traverse City Arts Commission Public Art Fund, with additional funding from the Downtown Traverse City Foundation. Visit https://tcpublicart.org/then-and-now for the locations in downtown Traverse City where the plaques are displayed.
