Inscription. In 1887, a two-story frame print shop was situated on this site. In 1919, Scott Starr purchased the building for use as a funeral home, and also offered autos “for hire”. A new brick addition was added and the frame structure renovated. The building was later referred to as Starr Apartments, and has since been home to many different businesses.
