This small two-story frame building was likely constructed as a residence with a ground-level bakery, and was constructed around the same time as the large commercial block to which it is attached.  Historic photographs show a door in the second bay from the far left, flanked by windows with operable shutters.  It was later transformed into an extension of the grocery sometime in the late-19th century.  What was the storefront, defined by a small cornice with dentils and supported by plain wood pilasters, has been boarded with green wood shingles.  Only the storefront cornice remains from this later alteration.  The entrance is in the same location, but the multi-pane display windows have since been removed and boarded.
