Inscription. In 1893, this two-story building served as a general merchandise establishment. Daniel Barry operated his business here until 1897. Cohn, Doll & Co (later Doll Bros. and Smith) operated a dry goods and general merchandise store here, followed by the Rocky Mountain Stores Co. from 1908-1915. Albert Nelson and Joe Brunetti later operated a garage and filling station in the building through the 1940s.

The building's next identity was as "Tony's Cue Club," operated by Tony Manupella with apartments on the second floor. Local residents have many fond memories of Tony's.
