Evidence of Construction Date:

This building, also referred to as 1815 Princess Anne St. and block 23A, was constructed in 1946. The biggest indicator of its date is the jump in building value from $3,500 in 1945 to $10,000 in 1946. The building also appears on the 1946 plat map as an ice plant, which corresponds to the owner of the lot at the time, Interstate Ice Company. Additionally, the foot print of the building today is the same as the one on the 1946 plat map.
