Inscription.

In 1857 a single story wood frame structure was built on this property. The building was divided into two 12' wide stores, each with its own front door. For 30 years a jewelry business, which also sold organs, clocks, silverware and spectacles, operated here.

In 1889 C.D. Bevington built a brick and mortar one-story structure on this lot. The Koser brothers had a clothing store in the building for 54 years. A second story was added in 1901. Later, it housed the Graves clothing store and gift shops. Many of the original fixtures, such as a tin ceiling, oak staircase and railings, and oak and walnut counters are still used inside the building.
