8064 Hwy. 57
Now known as the Hjertehjem Shop, Roger Eatough also built this original building, the south part, in 1885. The foundation of chipped stone is no longer visible. The original part was used as a drug store, furniture store, a mortuary, and the post office. Then Ernald Viste bought this building in the 1950s and added the north part to operate a hardware store, a realty and insurance office. Ernald Viste was town clerk for 51 years, so it often served to hold town board meetings. More recently, it has been the location of Hjertehjem, in business in Baileys Harbor for 36 years.
