Some buildings become best known for a singular historic event which occurred there, such as a famous person visiting (George Washington slept there) or a noteworthy business, educational, or social event. More commonly, buildings--especially commercial structures, schools, and churches--may have several businesses or organizational uses over a period of years or decades.
