Built in 1875 to manufacture agricultural machinery. Now part of a huge 3M complex alongside more modern buildings. Mechanic St. originally had houses built for the Works employees, but none remain. Some examples of early workers' houses are nearby. See 1867 Ames St. and 1881 and 1886 Magnolia St., for example. For the best view of the old factory buildings, continue north on Hazel onto the walkbridge over the railroad tracks and look southeast. You are standing on the original streetcar right-of-way which ran along Hazel and bridged the Omaha Railroad's double main line.
