Inscription. This unique ornate building has been on Lander's Main Street since 1893. Built by Thomas J. Bossert and it was used for his dry goods store. He ran it as a "cash only" store. He advertised clothing at lower prices than every offered in Lander. He ran competitive ads in the newspaper "price goods elsewhere then called on Mrs. T.J. Bossier and you will be surprised at her low prices."
 
Erected by Fremont County Museum.
