This was the office of The Wenatchee Sun in 1922. Publisher Robert H. Maus stands in the doorway of the building, located at 105 First Street. The newspaper started in May 1921 and continued through most of 1939. It was owned by the North Central Washington Publishing Company. The entrance to the office was on the north side of the Griggs Building that faced Wenatchee Avenue and was built in 1903 by Captain Alexander Griggs.

The entrance to the building from First Street gone, the Griggs Building has been extensively remodeled much of that coming after a large fire in the structure on April 3, 1957.
