The two story brick building was erected before 1920, by Mr. Ford, who had a paint and hardware business in the west side of the first floor. In the east side there was a 5 & 10¢ Store. In 1923, there was a severe fire in the building which resulted in the Village buying a new pumping machine for the fire department. Several details have remained intact, such as the rounded green tiles on the roof, the brick cornice details, the corbeled stringcourse which defines the end of the second story, and the raised second story sidewalls with limestone caps.
