The Butcher Shop had its beginnings in the 1860ís. This small, brick structure is also in remarkable condition, looking much today as it did when first built. The marble floor of the front porch was cut from the Fiddletown quarry and hauled to town by mule team. The porch is fronted by two arched doorways, probably fitted with iron doors at one time. At one time the inside walls were completely plastered over, but now the coating is beginning to crumble away.
