Inscription.

A bakery was here 1867-95. In 1891 a fire started up the street. Men were on top of 136 pouring on water from a line of buckets. A restaurant here in 1905 with sleeping rooms upstairs advertised "25 cents gets a square meal." In 1920 a cleaning and tailor shop was on the ground floor, while it was rumored that the "Ladies of the Night" entertained local gentry on the second floor. On July 4, 1934 a nightwatchman shot and killed Robert Dolley a local baseball player. After 1934 restaurants, including a "White Front," occupied the ground floor. Current owners are Mike and Shawna Crane, who operated a boutique here.
