1870-1890: There were only a scattering of houses along this block of Third Street SE before 1870. One of them survives still at 1113 Third Street SE and is now known as the Herda House Bed & Breakfast! Development of this block really picked up after the 1872 opening of the Sinclair Packinghouse three blocks to the south of this area. By 1890, many more job sources arrived in the neighborhood including the JG Cherry dairy Packaging Company and the Whiting Foundry at 400 12th Avenue SE.
