Regarding Bransford & McIntyre Store. Mclntyre and Co's general store was on this site in the mid-1870's. After Joseph S. Hall bought it, he added a soda bottling works in the back of the frame building. The building burned in 1881 but was immediately replaced with the brick building that is standing today. By 1883 the new general store, run by Bransford and A. D. Mclntyre, included the telegraph and Wells Fargo Express (note the mural on the side of the building). J. R. Murray became the next owner in 1890. In the following decade the building was used as a warehouse, furniture store, temporary bank, pool and card room, restaurant and tavern. The building is built like a fortress complete with steel-shuttered doors and windows.
