Inscription.

Grocery stores operated here in the late 1800's. By 1907, a bakery with an oven in the basement had been added, as well as a jewelry store. It later became a hardware store with a tin shop in the rear. A pool hall, a farm and auto parts store, and a laundromat have occupied the premises.

From 1953 to present (2006) it has served as a law office.
