Inscription.

In the early 1870s the City Bakery operated here in a wooden structure. This brick building was used by farm implement dealers in the late 1800s. In 1907 it was a grocery/meat market, and motion pictures were shown here in 1916.

By the 1930s Mr. Harvey had opened a candy shop here. Holiday's Candy Kitchen followed a few years later. This establishment was well-known for its ice cream cones. The ice cream was frozen into rolls, and then cut off into various lengths, depending upon the size of the cone that was ordered. The store closed in the 1960s.

The next three occupants of this building were photographers. Crawford's Photography was followed by Larry's Photography. Mike Kellner of Foto & Frame bought the building in 1996 and remained here for ten years.

Kurt and Sandra Pearson purchased the building and began a complete renovation. Glass painted "Candy Kitchen" windows were discovered and returned to the Holiday family. Pearson's design and gift boutique, Le Collage, opened in 2006.
