ago, owners Trassare restored the facade closer to its 1854 style. With the Masonic Hall and part of the Fixiary building at 29-33 Main, they are the only known stores built in the county's birth year, 1854. The brickwork for the store and its northerly neighbor (later destroyed) "was laid in 21 days in November" that year.
