Historic Oregon Trail

—Established 1874 —

The lot which this building occupies was first the location of a wood frame structure housing the McCord Brothers blacksmith shop. In 1867, Dr. J.M. Boyd and John W. Wisdom leased the structure to open Baker City's first drug store. Wisdom continued in business in the same location until the 1900s.
In 1920, J.C. Penney Co. acquired the property and constructed a building for a new department store. The J.C. Penney store moved from the building in the 1950s.
