Phoenix Manufacturing Company, Forest & Wisconsin Streets, Eau Claire, Eau Claire County, WI
Significance: The Phoenix Manufacturing Company is an architecturally significant property, providing the city's most intact example of industrial architecture. The two stone structures, initially used as the firm's foundry and machine shop, represent a method of construction and illustrate a type of structure used by manufacturing concerns in the nineteenth century. The massive brick edifice attached to these buildings is a recognizable industrial structure characterized by a monitor roof and large segmental arch openings, both features providing light to the interior work area.
