14. Wilson Business College      (1905)

401-407 W Holly St.
The building was located behind the blue fence in the picture above.
Prof Augustus Wilson established the first business school at Lynden in 1891, and opened the Northwest Business College in New Whatcom in 1895, moving to the upper floor of  this location in 1908 and changing the name to Wilson Business College and remaining until after World War I. The lower floor was occupied by a variety of retail establishments, and in the 1930s the upper floor was converted to a meeting room for the Woodmen of the World. Later the building was used as a second-hand furniture store--the Martin's Center, named for its owner, Mildred Martin. (Turbeville, 1977, pp.181-182.)
