An example of Victorian commercial architecture dominant in Washington's downtown, a hardware store was housed here for many years. W. C. Mallison and Son was a retail dealer in stoves, cutlery, hardware, household goods, tools, guns, and ammunition. The business was established by W. C. Mallison and was later run by his sons, F.C. Mallison and S.M. Mallison. It is reported to be the first brick building constructed following the War Between the States. National Register survey dates the building between 1885-1901.
