Regarding Lincoln Building. Excerpt from the National Register nomination:
The Lincoln Building was constructed c. 1905 by local drug wholesaler C. J. Lincoln as a real estate investment (his own business was housed elsewhere). City directories reveal that the two separate first floor retail spaces originally housed a butcher shop at the 1423 Main Street address and Dawson's Drug Store at the 1425 Main Street address, a business that remained at this location until 1968. The second story was always intended to serve as living space. Originally laid out in three separate apartments, these rooms were transformed into a rooming house arrangement by the 1940's (certain undocumented folklore claims that these rooms also served as a brothel at some point in time).
