c. 1890

In the 1890s, Joseph and Albert Sampliner started a small business selling men's
fine clothing from a pushcart. The Sampliner cousins purchased their goods from
bankrupt dry good stores in the Red Mountain mining district.

The Sampliners opened Grand Junction's first fine men's clothing store at this
location in 1895. The store expanded and became Rush-Sanford Clothing and
finally Brownson's Clothing Store. The owners of the Rockslide Brewery were
careful to maintain the historical integrity of the building when they opened their
new restaurant and brewery in 1994.
