In January of 1914, L. E. Jenkins bought the lot at the corner of Mill and Pearl Streets. In February he started construction on this building and hired J. M. Lail as his contractor. According to the Bayfield Blade, L. E. Jenkins was in his new building, the Bayfield Drug Store, by July of 1914. In the late 1930s, D. L. Wells built an addition to the north side of the original structure to house the meat locker and creamery of his grocery business. This building served as the Bayfield Town Hall from June 1978 to September 2008.
