Inscription.  Partners Floyd Dement and George Childs started a hardware business in 1912 and relocated to this building in 1918. The two worked together until 1935 when they had a falling out and dissolved their partnership. Neither one ventured too far, however, they operated their separate businesses next door to one another for several years.
 
Erected by Deschutes Historical Museum. (Marker Number B9.)
