     One of the earliest commercial ventures in Edinburg, this building was completed in 1910 by John Closner (1853-1932), a founder of the townsite. Its first tenant was the Rev. W. O. Miller, who operated a hardware and machinery store. During World War I, it was used as a Red Cross workshop. In 1920 the property was acquired by E. M. Everitt, who used the building primarily as a grocery store. Among the building's numerous other tenants were the Masonic Lodge and the Golden Jersey Creamery. An Edinburg landmark, the structure stands as part of the city's early economic history. (1983)
