National Register of Historic Places in Coos County
The Black Building, located in downtown Myrtle Point is the oldest brick building in Myrtle Point, possibly in Coos County.
The building is two stories tall and three bays wide in the Italianate style. It has served the community as a general merchandise store, newspaper office, and general meeting place.
An unusual feature of the building is that the bricks themselves and the building were the product of one family's workmanship, that of Daniel Giles and his son, Sam. The locally-manufactured brick was used in the construction of at least four major Myrtle Point buildings.
