This was the first building expressly constructed for the Eureka Post
Office Postmaster Frederick Aze, (served as Eureka postmaster for 17
years.) motivated by cramped and ill suited facilities at 612
Second St. had this building constructed at his own expense. The
building was designed by John Nestor and erected by Harry Close.
The second floor served as a social hall and meeting place for several
organizations including the "Grand Army of the Republic" (Civil War Veterans).

Over time the property served several business locations. The hall
was eventually converted to a rooming house. The property was
eventually purchased by a fascinating icon of Eureka, Glyndon
"Sign" Smith. Mr. Smith was a sign writer, magician, and civic
supporter. His shop of artistic sign writing and cornucopia occupied
this location for nearly 40 years.

Kramer Properties Inc. purchesed the building in August of 2000 and
started rehabilitating the area. During reconstruction a fire burnt the
rear of several buildings. Renovation was completed in December
of 2002 preserving the historic front of this building and title was
transferred to A & K Investment LLC.
