Schubert Music/St. Charles Music Co. 1906-1935 · Walters Jewelry 1935-
—1878 · S.H. Merten & Company —This Italianate building with elaborate wood bracketed cornices has been described as a "structure unsurpassed in the quality of dignity." It has been home to Walter's Jewelry since 1935. From 1906 until 1935, Edward Schubert, pianist, composer and grandnephew of Franz Schubert, operated a music store here. An earlier owner, John Rochester, built a one-story house on this site in 1817. It was possibly this log house that was rented to George and Mary Sibley in 1827. Sibley had just returned from surveying the Santa Fe Trail. Two years later, the Sibleys moved to a farm near Lindenwood School, which they established as a women's college.
