This building housed the Record Courier for many decades, and also served as the home and office of Bert Selkirk who purchased the paper with W.S. Ezell from Dr. Southworth in 1904.
Under Mr. Selkirk's guidance, the Record Courier printed news including the coverage of both World War I and World War II. At that time, wooden type was set by hand prior to printing.
The building is now the home of the "Especially For You" gift shop.
