1. Bulkley-Buie Store Marker
Inscription.  S.B. Bulkley's first business here was in a frame business house in 1833. In 1840, he tore it down and rebuilt in brick. His clerk, Alexander Buie, later became his partner and the store was enlarged. Buie also sold Bibles in his store. When Daniel Grigg joined Buie, the second story was added to the building. In 1885 the store was a harness shop and later became a meat market.
