Built by entrepreneur Richard Arthurs (1850-1910), this building originally contained three separate storerooms. The first tenant in the easternmost room was G.W. Stewart & Co., a shoe factory which in 1886 was projected to employ 125. Later tenants included the Craig, Smith and Reitz Furniture Stores. In 1925 John M. Frazier added the second floor balcony over his Vienna Bakery.
