After a fire destroyed the original 1889 structure, Mercantile owner, Lutzi Tscharner bought the vacant land and hired a crew to construct a new, more fire proof building in 1895. Known as “The Tscharner Building,” the red brick building consisted of three floors. The first boasted 12-foot-tall ceilings, large cellars below, and a roomy storeroom — ideal for its use as a Mercantile.
