A. Friederich & Sons built the original building for the Yawman & Erbe office supply company on St. Paul Street. The original building is located further back from the street, and is now hidden within a larger complex owned by Castle Products. Yawman & Erbe grew considerably and eventually expanded into the vacated Stecher Lithographic building next door, and to an office building at 41 Chestnut Street and a plant at 1099 Jay Street, now Water Tower Park.
