Inscription.  
Carey's Hall was completed in 1854 by local contractor John W. Carey. Carey's Hall was given as first prize in the Monumental Building lottery in the early 1870s. It housed many businesses over the years. John W. Carey constructed the Shelby County Jail, helped build Sidney's first railroad and also laid out the Village of Anna, naming it after his daughter. Note his admonition on the west wall: “Post no bills here.”
