1. 73 Jefferson Marker
Inscription.

In 1864 this was the site of Irish immigrant Andrew Crawford's wood-frame grocery store.

This building was erected with one main facade for three stores. Notice the matching second-story windows.

Some of the businesses housed in the east end of this building have been several groceries, (including a Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, the familiar A & P), a furniture store, a paint store, a tire store, an attorney's office, clothing stores, and the chamber of commerce.

The second floor has been used as an abstract office as well as attorneys' offices. This building once had an outside stairway on the east side. Originally, most buildings on the alleys and at the ends of the blocks around Winterset's square, had outside stairways leading to the second levels.
 
Erected 1999 by Madison County Antique Association and Central Iowa Tourism Region.
