Inscription.  E. L. Collins erected this building as a drive-through filling station and garage on what had been a residential city block since the 1850s. McDowell Appliance Store took over the corner in the 1940s and was followed by Huber Paint Store from 1953 to 1984. Various shops and offices occupied the room on the west. The north section originally housed a seed and feed business. In 1938, the Farmer's Store moved in and was a local landmark for 50 years. Among the offices upstairs was US Senator A. Tom Stewart's in 1928.
