Plumbers and Steam Fitters and Hot Air Heating, 110 E. Washington av." In the early 1900s, they built the Eddy Block as home for the Eddy Engineering Company.

The business was carried on by other family members, notably Lomas C. Eddy, who retired in 1982. The business was continued, on a smaller scale, by his son, Lomas H. Eddy.
