"The Cameron Transfer and Storage Company Building is eligible for listing in the National Register under Criterion C in the area of Engineering. The period of significance for the building is 1909-1911, the years that the building was constructed. The property is locally significant and represents a major shift in warehouse construction from wood post-and-beam structures to reinforced-concrete mushroom capital structures. Both systems were used in the construction of the warehouse, making the property a rare example of the ""old"" and ""new"" structural techniques within the same superstructure. The entire building was designed by Minneapolis engineer Claude Allen Porter (C. A. P.) Turner."
