An interesting fact about your business: Our building has such a history. The building started out as a general merchandise store in 1875, a clothing store in the '50s and a diner. In May of 2005, we started restoring the building to its original elegance. During the renovations people would stop by and tell stories of things that had happened here. It is great to have a connection to the past and knowing that others take interest in the history is wonderful.
