C. 1914Ralph Rees built this commercial building to house his hardware store around 1914. Like many early twentieth century commercial front buildings, only the pressed tin facade raises two stories. This building housed Rees hardware store and an agency for Oakland Cars (which was the first dealership in Cecil County) and also the American Store.
