Story #11: On this spot in 1962, Jordan’s Meats opened its plant.

The Jordan’s Meat Factory took up an entire block of The India Street Neighborhood. Many people associate it with the iconic red hot dog. When Jordan’s closed in 2004 almost three hundred people lost their jobs. The building remained standing. A number of people shared stories of breaking in to the abandoned building. In 2010 the building burned to the ground. Many people speculated about the cause of the fire due to the high property value of the site. A hotel and parking lot were built on this site.
