1. Huston Building Marker
Inscription. Elmer Huston had this building constructed with two stores on the ground level and apartments above in 1923. It housed the post office and a variety store from 1924 to 1928. In 1929, the Mulholland Dry Goods Company moved into both spaces. The original building had a decorative transom with prismatic glass panes above the display windows, which was typical of the early 20th century storefronts. The building has retained its steep side gable roof and the original configuration of the symmetrical second floor windows.
