Inscription. Click to hear the inscription.  The bookstore is a one-story brick building built in 1870 for Daniel M. and Joshua W. French as part of a large holding of property in The Dalles. Ingwert C. Nickelsen moved his bookstore and music business here in 1883, and it has been used for this purpose since then. The Weigelt brothers purchased the building in 1928 and operated it for more than 50 years. Iron doors and shutters at the north end are original elements of the building.
