...that the Lumber Exchange Building (pictured) in Minneapolis, Minnesota (1885) is the oldest remaining building in the United States outside of New York City with more than eleven floors?

I wonder if it's the oldest remaining building in the US outside of NYC with more than ten floors as well.

So, it's only the oldest remaining building in the US outside of NYC with more than nine floors plus two floors added later?

why back in 1885 did they need nine floors, and two extra more, to EXCHANGE LUMBER?
Did they stock the timbers upright????
