1895-1927 (Building erected in 1914)

A.Z. Palmer was one of the original settlers of Snowflake and established the first store there with Mark Kartchner, a brother-in-law. In 1895 he purchased the store located on this site and thereafter became the pre-eminent merchant in the region for a number of years. His son Arthur was the chief clerk most of the time after about 1905, and later the postmaster, an insurance agent, and a farm implement dealer - all businesses operated in conjunction with this store (called then A. Z. Palmer and Son). A. Z. died in 1925 the same year Arthur was called on a two year LDS mission to the Eastern States and during his absence the store failed. A. Z. served a broad regional clientele with his general store, livery stable, and ice cream parlor besides the other businesses.
