Thehistory of this landmark is remarkable. Having been first established as a mercantile store it has been home to hardwareand general stores, law & tax offices, among others. Walking through the building you see evidence of its originalarchitecture. Glancing at the transom windows located high on the walls you'll notice the telltale signs of antique glass.Strolling through the shed-roof annex you'll see the names of some of the early occupants written onto the raw timber. Adusty old hand-written ledger shows the painstaking detail used to record early transactions. Much of the merchandisestocked in the store was delivered by merchant ships that traveled up nearby Bennett's Creek.
