Perry's Dry Goods

—Vernacular Residential Style —
Frank Yparraguirre purchased the land and building and was the proprietor of Perry's (short for Yparraguirre) Dry Goods for over four decades. Frank, having an excellent sense of humor, once quipped he used dry goods in the business name as "wet goods" were available next door at the bar!
While remaining in the Yparraguirre family name, the building is currently home to Nettie's Fashions.
In the upper left corner of the marker is the seal of the Town of Gardnerville, while in the lower right corner is the seal of the US Forest Service, which provided a grant for this marker.
