1n 1886 there was a restaurant in the north side of the original building and a harness shop in the south side. A dry goods store in the north side and a jewelry store in the south side occupied the double store building in 1899. The Evening Star Lodge #43 purchased the original one-story structure in 1911. The second story was added in 1914, and has been occupied by the Masonic Temple since that time.

The main level of the building has been leased by a variety of merchants. In 1916 there was a hardware store in the front and a tin shop in the back. The United Food Market, Winterset's first self-serve grocery, moved to this location in 1926. Owner H. A. Ross's new concept allowed customers to hand-select their own food items, with the promise of lower prices.

In the early 1960s the Western Auto Store, operated by Blair Weidman, moved to the first floor of this building. In 1967, that business was purchased by Don and Phyllis Clark who added a bike shop as well. The Clarks saw the need for a different type of business in the 1980s, and launched Clark's New and Use Furniture. One of their delivery men, Shawn Honnold, bought the business in 2001 and renamed it Shawn's Furniture.
