Built in 1928, the commercial building was designed by Baltazar Torres, a local building and architect.
From 1945 until the mid-1980's it operated as Whitman's Army Store and pawnshop.
The three metallic spheres suspended from the exterior of the window on the second floor are the historical symbol for a pawnbroker.
