The northwest corner of 4th and Main, featuring Seeds of Hope Thrift Store. The historic Patterson Hotel is also visible.
The Patterson Hotel opened New Year’s Day, 1911. It was once the tallest building in North Dakota and the state’s unofficial political headquarters for decades.
The Seeds of Hope building formerly housed Universal Motors (later McCarney Ford). In 1964, it was converted to become a second J.C. Penney location (in addition to the NW corner of 5th & Broadway). The location emphasized auto service, appliances, and hardware merchandise.
Penney’s consolidated its two store into Kirkwood Mall in 1980 as part of the mall’s Phase II expansion.
Also pictured are Luft Bar and Discontent (since closed).
