Nat’l Registry of Historic Places: 2500 NE MLK

The second of two buildings (on the stretch of the boulevard this blogs covers) on the National Registry of Historic Places, the Jensen Investment Company Building now houses Bardy Trophy at 2500-2522 NE MLK:

The building was erected in 1930 and originally housed Van De Kamp’s Holland Dutch Bakery, which sold numerous kinds of coffee cake. The platform atop the building held a windmill (presumably to signal that Dutch bakery items were sold there), but it fell off at some point, possibly in a storm. Stop into Goldrush Coffee Shop across the street for early photos of the building.
