Herres Farm & Home Supply Building (Site ID 50)
Classification: Historic Non-Contributing

632 Main Street

According to the Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps, by 1896, three small buildings on the site housed a tin shop, harness business, and a store. In 1922, a barber/bathhouse, electric battery service station, and Shawen's Feed and Poultry Store stood on the site. By 1930, only the feed and poultry store remained.

Ferd and Swede Herres started construction on a new concrete block building on the site in 1945 for use as a Firestone store, and Farm & Home Supply store. The building was finished on 1 April 1946. Later uses of the building include a hardware store and teen center. Lonnie and Donna Flynn purchased the building around 1992 and converted the structure into apartments.
