This middle section of the building has been occupied by a bakery, drug stores, a pool hall, a dry cleaner, an engineering firm, and restaurants, including the Black and White Restaurant and the China Cafe.

In earlier years, the second floor was used as an apartment. It has a skylight in the roof which helped provide natural light to the middle of the building in the years before there was electricity. [M]any of the buildings around the square originally had skylights, [E]lectric lights were first turned on in November, 1889 on Winterset's town square.
