circa 1880

In the Civil War days, the county jail stood here. It was a two story log cabin and was entered on the second floor, by an exterior stairway. Two banks occupied the first floor of the current building; Citizens National Bank, and later First National Bank. It has also served as the Farm Bureau, law offices, a women's clothing store, beauty shop, and a bookstore. A barber shop operated out of the basement for many years.

An abstract office, law offices and apartments have been on the second floor. After the rear section of the building was added, it was home to the Selective Service, a justice of the peace, veterinary offices, various doctors' offices, a beauty shop, a bakery, and a barber shop.
