Inscription.

Drugs and Jewelry were sold from the wood frame building that originally stood here. The current building housed a succession of shoe stores for more than 100 years. Proprietors were Aikens, Allen, Stevens, and Hendricks.

In the early 1900's, Dr. Jessie V. Smith, physician and surgeon, had her offices on the second floor. She was the physician present at the birth of Marion Morrison, later known as Hollywood actor, John Wayne.
