This building was built in 1925, by Addison Chong, as was the house next door where the Chong's lived. Addison and his wife Mary owned and operated Chong's Chinese Restaurant for many years.

In 1950, Addison's brother Richard took over the building and opened Chong's Candy Store.

Richard operated Chong's Candy Store for 28 years until his death in 1978. He was the last candy-maker of his kind in the county.
