A. Herz Store
This postcard, posted in Terre Haute on August 28th, 1916, has no other printed text.
Designed by W. Homer Floyd and built by William Riley McKeen in 1906-07, this building was constructed for Adolph Herz (1843 - 1917) at 646-652 Wabash Avenue. It was a five-storey building faced with enameled brick and had three elevators and a mezzanine. Next to the store was the brick three-storey Pennsylvania Railroad ticket and freight office which became the Herz annex in 1915.
Adolph Herz was a well-respected businessman and civic leader who had been in business in Terre Haute since 1869. On his death, his brother, Milton, succeeded him as manager. In 1946, the store was sold to the Alden Department Store chain and became the Alden-Herz Store. The building was demolished in the spring of 1971.
