In the 1920s, this warehouse was the central location for production and distribution of bootleg alcohol run by the savage crime family known as the Genna brothers. Competing against the North Side Gang for the liquor trade, a gang war erupted. In 1925, three of the brothers were gunned down in separate gunfights against the North Siders and police. The other brothers subsequently fled Chicago. No one really knows how many brothers there were in total.
