Significant Elements began in 1991 and operated seasonally out of an old tobacco barn until 1998, when it was moved to a late-1880s carriage house on Seneca Street. In order to expand into year-round operation and to add much-needed space, Historic Ithaca purchased this 100-year old warehouse at the corner of Center and Plain Streets in 2002.
Pritchard & Sons originally built this warehouse for use as a carriage and wagon repository. It was later used as a corset factory, airplane parts factory, a warehouse for Rothschild’s Department Store, Harbeck’s Paper Company, and the ICC Furniture warehouse.
