Straw's Block Construction 1891-1895

Construction on the Straw's block started in 1891 by W.F. Straw (Born 1833). The building was the final and largest brick building to be constructed on the block. Straw had previously owned a hardware store, a mill, and a deer farm housed in the woods surrounding the fairgrounds. The building was W.F. Straw's retirement investment. The building was constructed for the following original tenants:

1st Floor (Divided Into Three Spaces) - Remage & Dix Drugs, Dr. L. L. Hebenthal (On Corner) and Offices (South Side).

2nd Floor - Town Dance Hall

3rd Floor - Original Masonic Loge (Relocated to current home of Union Bank)
