This building and the structure to the west were owned and operated by the Tidrick-Terrill Company in the late 1800s. Their furniture store occupied this building for many years. An elevator in the back of the building was shared by the company's undertaking business next door.

In 1920, Breeding Hardware started here, but by 1927 it moved to the building to the west. Arthur Goshorn then purchased the building and moved his business, The Winterset News, to this location. He stated "in its new location The News will have one of the best equipped and best arranged printing offices in the state."

Jackson Electric occupied the premises in the late 1940s. It remained here until the early 1970s, when Breeding Hardware purchased the space in order to expand its business into both buildings.

In 1998, the building was sold to Weeks Properties, Inc., which ran an Iowa Realty office here until December, 2008. Currently the building is occupied by Bridges Financial Associates, Inc.
