Indianola in Warren County, Iowa — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
124 North Howard
While Harrison's has enjoyed a lengthy stay here it is not the building's longest resident. That title belongs to the E. W. Perry Clothing Store which constructed the building in 1874 and remained here until 1922. Other notable inhabitants have been the Richmond Shoe Company, which resided here from 1922 until 1938, and the Hyde Food Service Company (now known as Hy-Vee) who set up shop here for 18 years prior to moving off the square entirely.
Lawyers, dentists and doctors alike made the upper story home for nearly 100 years until the new brick front was added. Under the facade are large windows for the offices on the second floor to have natural lighting. Remnants of these
Erected by Warren County Philanthropic Partnership; Girl Scouts Troop 225; and Harrison's. (Marker Number 1208-A.)
