  • Historic buildings that were former pasta / macaroni factories

    Are there any old buildings that were former macaroni factories:

    1. That still have signs that say macaroni or spaghetti either embedded into the building finish or still have the old painted markings of the company.

    An example is the Chicago Macaroni Company Building, 2170 South Canalport Avenue, Chicago, Illinois

    On this same building, the cornerstone is marked:
    Viviano Bros Macaroni Co
    Established 1900

    2. That are historic landmarks that have macaroni factory in the name.

    An example is the Western Macaroni Manufacturing Company in Salt Lake City, Utah

    3. Historic markers that mark the site of a former macaroni factory.

    Two examples are:

    The Crescent Lofts is an example of a historic macaroni building with "Crescent Macaroni & Cracker Co." embedded into the archway at the office entrance, see http://www.crescentlofts.com/. The building is located at 500 Iowa Street, Davenport, Iowa. This old macaroni factory was renovated and turned into a deluxe apartment building.
