1. Monti and Guanella Building, 1867 Marker
Inscription.  This structure is one of the town’s oldest surviving wooden commercial buildings. Originally, it was a two-story structure that was about half the width of the present building. By 1874, the owners had doubled the size of the structure, creating a continuous second-story façade.

The bakery and grocery firm of Monti and Guanella is the most noteworthy of the various businesses that have occupied this building. Henry Kneisel was employed as the head baker, and he later purchased the business. In 1893 he moved his operations across the street, where he established the Kneisel and Anderson Store.
 
Erected 2007 by Town of Georgetown and Historic Georgetown, Inc.
