Circa 1854

This building was built as a general store for Mahlon and Josiah Wright, sons of the village founder, Jonathan Wright. The building originally had a shed roof extending out over the street to protect customers from the weather. A large stepping stone for use by customers as they stepped down from their horse-drawn buggies and wagons still remains near the street today. Members of the Wright family operated the general store until 1895. It was then sold to William Siegfried who continued to operate a general store until 1930. The building was then sold to the Springboro Grange, a fraternal association of farmers, and served as their meeting hall until 1989.
