Bill's Trading Post/G & M Stronghold Steakhouse

— Daisy Mae's Steakhouse —

335 North Garden Avenue
Built in 1905
This is perhaps the oldest building still standing in Sierra Vista. Mr. John Reilly homesteaded the property and received the patent for the land in March of 1911. John Reilly and his wife Ellen sold the property to Margaret Ziegan in December of 1911. Margaret, who later married William Carmichael, then ran it as a store and post office. This building served as the post office when the community was called Overton; the name was later changed to Garden Canyon. Erwin and Lillian Fry rented this facility from the Carmichaels for about ten years. In 1937, when Lillian Fry became postmaster, the name of the post office was changed to Fry, and the Fry's moved out of this building. In the 1930s and 1940s various people leased the store. The Carmichael's finally sold the building to Bill Peterson, who named it Bill's Trading Post and converted it to a restaurant. The building has gone through several name changes and owners since then but has been the Daisy Mae's Steakhouse since 1993.
