Inscription.  Richard Mendenhall built the store as an adjunct to his tanning business. His wares included general goods and food items. During the 20th century the building served as a private residence and also housed a variety of stores and offices. The interior originally comprised two rooms on each floor. The brickwork is laid in Flemish bond and includes a corbelled cornice, created by setting the bricks as an angle. Features of special interest include the pairing of an inside and outside chimney, a doorway on the second floor on the back of the house, and an exterior fireplace.
