E.R. Butterworth Building
Stephen Day Architecture is the historic preservation architect working in a team led by the McAleese family and Chesmore/Buck Architecture for a substantial rehabilitation of the E.R. Butterworth Building, in the Pike Place Public Market Historic District of Seattle. The building is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Butterworth is an early example of a purpose-built undertakers establishment, built with stables and horse-drawn funeral carriages, morgue, embalming rooms, chapel, casket display rooms, reception spaces, undertakers’ residences, and offices. In recent history, the building has been the location for Kell’s Irish Bar and Restaurant, a Pike Place Market fixture for decades now. The building is one of several of our projects that are purported to be haunted.
