Inscription.

This building housed a general store in 1886, a clothing shop in 1893, and boots and shoes were sold here in 1907. By 1916 it was a grocery store.

The Western Auto Store was located here from the 1920s until the early 1960s when, in need of more space, the business moved to the east side of the square. Wilma Ehm purchased the building in the early 1960s and rented it as a Montgomery Ward catalog store. She later sold the building to Medicap Pharmacy. By 1999 the pharmacy relocated to its new facility.

Today the space is used by Madison County Medical Associates.
