In 1862, tinsmith Louis Robinson constructed this brick and stone building to replace his original frame store which was destroyed in the fire of August 20, 1859. In 1869 it became a bakery and store, a use it was to have over the next 40 years. The first baker was Adam Magers, who operated it until his death in 1874. Shortly thereafter John Heinsdorff took over its operation, and then John L. March from 1883 to 1888. The property was then purchased by Horace Edson Thorpe; after his death in 1900 it was operated by his children until sold to Fred and Emil Schwoerer in 1909. The deteriorated building was purchased and restored by Isabelle Bishop Dibble in the 1950s, and is presently owned by Edward and Francis Barnsley, who have completed the restoration.
