United Cigar was formed in 1902 by the consolidation of Kerbs, Wertheim & Schiffer; Hirschhorn, Mack & Company; and Stratton & Storm Company. It was subsequently incorporated in New York under the same name in 1906. As of 1907, the company owned and operated 19 factories in New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey and manufactured 400 million cigars annually for the wholesale market. It became the General Cigar Company about 1917.
The cigar factory was operated for an undetermined period as the York City Cigar Company. After 1932, the building housed printers and clothing manufacturers and is currently used as an apartment building.
The three-story, brick building is on a stone foundation and has a low-pitched gable roof. The main facade is 18 bays wide and has a 4-bay-wide, 1-bay-deep, center pavilion. The building measures 174 feet wide by 41 feet deep.
