Summary

Significance: The building served as headquarters for retail and printing operations of the Eden Publishing Company from 1869 to 1979. Several expansions occurred throughout the company's time of occupation. In the 1930s the building underwent a major addition and renovation into the commercial Art Deco style. The building stands as a representative of German industry that was once pervasive throughout the Lafayette Park neighborhood and across central Missouri.
