On May 9, 1895, Mr. R.H. Marquette established a cigar factory and store at this location. The store was a local gathering place for men in the community. Its popularity increased greatly when a bowling alley was added to the business years later.

In 1917, Mr. Marquette was elected mayor and decided to close the enterprise. R.H. Marquette passed away in 1938. He was the grandfather of Mary Marquette Graves, who was the great niece of the legendary Thomas Coleman "Cole" Younger and wife of noted Lee's Summit historian Frank Graves.
