Description 

The Wing Hong Tai Company building was built in 1878, replacing a structure that had burned in the 1877 fire. It was built as a fire-proof structure, with a layer of bricks on the roof. Its floor and roof were raised after 1882 to meet the new street grade that was raised by the RR construction. The building was used as a Chinese laundry and merchandise store from about the 1880ís to the 1920ís.
