At the north end of the Public Landing, and bordering the I&M Canal on the east bank, is the Gaylord Building. Constructed in 1838, the 1½ -story limestone and timber structure first functioned as a supply depot, mule barn, and warehouse during canal construction. In 1853, George Martin purchased the building for use as a grain warehouse, and made several modifications to the structure. Different owners have owned and occupied the building over the years.
Today, the Gaylord Building is one of 28 National Trust Historic Sites and is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
