400, 402 W. Miner St.H.E. Stimmel, a German native, purchased this building from William Chamberlain in 1856, and promptly opened a stove shop. Initially selling parlor and cooking stoves, he gradually expanded his inventory and turned the business into a general hardware store. Shortly after the turn of the century, Mr. Stimmel passed on. The building was sold, renovated with a glass and iron front, and became a grocery, confectionery, and fruit store. Upstairs provided space for the News, a competitive newspaper. In more recent years the building housed a bakery, mortuary, art gallery, and clothing store. Note the tin ceiling has been restored and meticulously painted.
