Inscription. This two-story red-brick commercial building was constructed in 1890 for Conrad Brunenkant. The bricks were locally made, and the rock-faced cut lintels and sills are from locally quarried stone. The exterior was altered in 1973 when the porch with awnings was added and the outside staircase was removed. The original entrance was changed from the west end to the south side. This local landmark is the oldest two-story red-brick building in Florence. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
