1. G & A Building Marker
Inscription.

This building was named for business partners Guleserian and Altoonjian, formerly of Armenia. Their Persian Bazaar had been relocated from the waterfront Midway to this downtown location. The second floor was leased for the Petoskey Normal and Business College, founded in 1888. Other retail occupants have included Mrs. Pearl Cutting, a well-loved seller of women's clothing in the 1950s and 1960s. Mclean and Eakin Booksellers enhanced the building's Neo-Classic Revival facade which features piers with decorative capitals between the windows.
