1. Kneisel and Anderson Store, 1892 Marker
Inscription.  Henry Kneisel built the western unit of this three-bay structure in 1892, and he moved his grocery business into it the following year. Kneisel had all the shelves and bins, which are still in use, built to his personal specifications. From his old place of business he brought with him his young employee, Emil Anderson, who was soon to become his partner and son-in-law.

Te single-bay building to the west was built somewhat later, and it also was initially a grocery store. Around 1912, Kneisel and Anderson purchased it and established their hardware business there, where it continues to this day.

The Kneisel and Anderson Store is the oldest, continuously operated business in Georgetown. Today, customers are served from behind the original counter.
