Building History

Richards & Conover Lofts’ historical past is evident as soon as residents walk into the beautifully preserved, yet updated space.

Richards & Conover Hardware Company

In 1902, Richards & Conover Hardware Company announced that they would construct a building to consolidate their multiple locations into one and began construction soon after. Later, in 1928, an addition was constructed to house offices and retail space. Richards & Conover Hardware Company experienced success from 1902 to 1948 and became known as one of the nation’s oldest and largest wholesale hardware, iron and steel distributors covering 10 states. The Richards & Conover Hardware building was added to the Historic Registry in 1998.

Richards & Conover Lofts

During its renovation in the early 2000’s, the old Richards & Conover Hardware Company building was converted into Richards & Conover Lofts. Located in the River Market, the building’s dramatic windows and incredible views remain in the modern residential lofts.
