According to documentation on
historical structures, the landmark Main Street building
was constructed circa 1905 and was used for decades
as the storefront of the John H. Midkiff Hardware Company.
The company's two brick warehouses were added in separate
renovation phases and completed in the 1930s. All three
buildings now comprise the not-to-be-missed Downtown
landmark, Main Oak Emporium.
