Location: Lake St. and 27th

This building once housed Freeman’s Department Store inside the Coliseum Building. It opened in 1917, and closed on 1975 with the commercial decline on Lake Street and the growth of national chains and suburban shopping. During the 70’s the basement was rented to notable tenants like The Suburbs and Citizen.
