But the city kept on growing. It took Cary 600 thousand pounds of steel and 88,230 bricks to create the H&D Schilling Building, which today hosts a variety of fine, locally owned businesses. Visit and support Bismarck’s aspiring entrepreneurs – the H&D Schilling Building has got something for everyone!
