Long Description:
The Utah State Historical Marker, mounted on the front of the building, reads:

Arimo Block

Built in 1913, this building was once referred to a "Arimo Block" (it was reportedly named aftedr a local Shoshone chief). Martinus Fonnesbeck established one of the first businesses in the block, the Fonnesbeck Knitting Works. Other original tenants included Harris Music, A.H. Palmer Plumbing, and the Arimo Pool Hall, which was located in the basement of Fonnesbeck Knitting Works. The Arimo Pool Hall had the only bowling alley in Logan, and advertisements boasted it as being "the most popular place in town." In 1915 Logan City established its city offices in this building, remaining there until 1963. Over the last century, many firms have occupied the spaces in this building, from engineering and electrical firms in the 1920s, to building supply and road construction firms in the 1940s, to the United States Department of the Interior's Geological Survey and Water Resources programs in the 1960s. A.H. Palmer and Sons is the only original Arimo Block occupant that still mainains its business here.
