Built in 1911 by the architectural firm H.C. Cooke & Co., for Pauline Bollack, a German immigrant from Bavaria, this three story structure has an attractive ornate façade. At the time, it was one of the largest buildings in town and typified the modern department store. It was restored in 2006 by Francisco and Sara Cermeno.
