Camila Bogard, owner of Bogard Branding, bought and renovated a historic, two-story building in Fort Benjamin Harrison at 5747 N. Post Rd., Lawrence.
The building dates back to 1908, and Bogard renamed it after its longtime owner, Marion Hall. The building is now called The Marion Hall Quarter at The Fort. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
Bogard founded Bogard Branding four years ago. She employs one person, Justin Corwin, who serves as the lead designer and project manager.
“(Bogard Branding is a marketing company that) focuses on energizing mid-sized companies by updating their look and marketing strategies,” Bogard said.
To purchase the building, Bogard is using U.S. Small Business Administration 504 loan program financing. She also plans to remodel the building.
Bogard also recently founded American Style Clothing Company which produces custom clothing, shoes, accessories, office products and home décor.
Bogard’s new location in the Marion Hall Quarter allows room for staff expansion and product creation. Bogard Branding will hold an open house at 4 p.m. April 18.
