Stone Building

An interesting Stone Building of fine construction and preservation stands alone on an empty town lot on the north side of Hwy 49. The structure was built in the 1850ís of dressed rhyolite tuff, quarried in nearby Pleasant Valley. It originally housed a general store, possibly run by Louis Lepetit, and at one time had wooden additions on each side, which have long since disappeared. The building still looks capable of serving as some kind of store or business; perhaps with a little restoration it might one day be used again.
