C. 1914

Ralph 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.
Restorations began in the 1980's when it was obtained by a cabinet maker. In 2002 the Town of Chesapeake City purchased the building, completed restoration and converted it into town hall.
