This building was a hardware store in 1886. In the early 1900s H. N. Shaw moved his dry goods store from the west side of the square to this site.

From 1931 to 1997 the J. C. Penney department store was in business here. An advertisement that ran in the Madisonian in the 1950s touted its long-running success this way, "At Penney's we offer no expensive frills such as charge accounts, delivery service, or fancy wrapping."

In 1997, Adel & Winterset Appliance occupied this building, followed by Islandcarragh Rose (gift and home d?cor), and Lori Nordstrom (photography).
