The current building is a hodgepodge of many buildings that have been combined over the years. A three-story brick and stone planing mill and shed was built for P.S. Ford in 1907. Then in 1924 a factory building designed byKansas Cityarchitect Von Unwerth was constructed and attached to the original 1907 structure. Finally the property was modified in 1965 by the Estrin Construction Company and again in 1969 for the MO-KAN Chemical Company when two one-story additions were added to create what we see today.

  1. Did you know the building has been a dairy? I worked there in the 1990’s when it was Lubar. MOKAN had a weird but exhilarating, Mad Men feeling to it, as a provider of cleaning supplies and private label versions of its products, to several states. I don’t know if Diversified took the archive with it, but there is some interesting KC history with the building.
