Entrepreneur Edward Jones ran a general store on this property for several years in the mid-1800s. By 1871, he took on a partner, M. R. Tidrick, and then moved on to other ventures.

The Tidrick-Terrill Company owned and operated several businesses, including a furniture store, general store/grocery and undertaking business. When the Breeding family moved in upstairs around 1920 they shared their living quarters with the store owner's funeral supplies.

Breeding Hardware moved to this building's main level in 1927. In 1973, Breeding Hardware purchased this building and the one to the east and expanded their business which remained here until 1998.

Bill and Cindy Bortell opened Quilting from the Heart, a fabric and quilting supply store, in 1999. In 2003, Marianne Fons, Liz Porter and Dean Pieters purchased the building and opened Fons and Porter Quilt Supply. The building also houses the editorial offices of the nationally known Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting magazine. New Track Media currently owns the building.
