1. The Mincer Building Marker
Inscription.

In 1895 this corner lot was purchased to house the dry goods business of A.L. Mincer. By 1913 the Mincer Building had grown into a modern day two-story department store covering two city lots. In 1993 Gene and Miki Zaid purchased the building to house offices and a laboratory for JACAM Chemicals, the business they established in 1982. Following a fire that destroyed much of the block on February 15, 2002, the Zaids rebuilt, using bricks from the original structure to face this corner building.
