This building was erected in 1891 and has been the home of Sullivan Hardware Company since 1903. In earlier years it was occupied by the Alliance Store operated by Rufus Hill. The Sullivan Firm was founded as a general merchandise store by J.M. Sullivan and C.S. Mattison in 1875. Originally it was located in the Centennial House (Old Christopher Orr Hotel Building) on E. Benson Street. When a Sullivan brother, H.K. Sullivan, bought Mr. Mattison's interest the name was changed from Sullivan & Mattison to Sullivan and Brother in 1882. After N.B. Sullivan joined the firm the name was changed to Sullivan Hardware Company in 1885. In 1901 the firm purchased the stock of Brock Hardware Company and soon became one of the largest hardware companies in the state.
