Atchison (Atchison County)
Listed in National Register 2010-07-06

Architect: Sayler & Seddon; Builder: Reyburn-Laird
Category: warehouse

The Kansas City-based architectural firm Sayler and Seddon designed the 56,000 square-foot Wherrett-Mize Drug Company Building in 1911 when the use of warehouses in Atchison expanded and helped transform the city into a competitive distribution center. Built as a drug wholesale warehouse, the three-story building is constructed of reinforced concrete with red brick walls and features subtle Classical detailing. These characteristics reflect common attributes of early 20th century industrial warehouses. The company's offices and showroom were located on the first floor, and they used the warehouse space to store their goods, which included pharmaceutical drugs, patent medicines, toiletries, sundries, gifts, and toys. The building served as a warehouse until July 2009. It was nominated for its local commercial history and its architecture.
