A cabin-dotted woodland in 1870, this square soon had buildings of stone quarried less than a mile away. Investor John D. Baker built this structure in 1882 and in 1890 sold it to saloonkeepers Aston & Landers. Extensive repairs were made in 1891, after a fire in this and neighbor buildings. By 1895, ex-County Clerk J.R. Morris had a hardware and tin shop here. Lon Morris, a widely-known lawyer and college benefactor, had his offices on the second floor.
