    Very cool, love this place. And it looks like a very appealing downtown area too. There is this interesting little gem just across the street.

    I wish I could see the “vintage kitchen that is ready for a remodel.”

      Me too! It’s a very promising space, with such pretty windows. Makes me think the kitchen might be kind of cool.

    Historical Marker:
    Ehrenwerth – Ramsey – Untermeyer Building

    Henry M. Ehrenwerth built this two-story commercial structure in 1873-75 of bricks from a local kiln. Designed for his mercantile store, it housed L.G. Smith’s Red Elk Saloon and Gambling Hall in the 1880s. In 1896 the building was purchased by James Ramsey who operated a hardware, implement, and undertaking business here. His son Charles sold the structure in 1925 to the hardware firm of Leo L., F.J., and Emil E.J. Untermeyer. (1973)

    I find it odd what real estate agents take pictures of when they are trying to sell a home or business. From the description, for me there are descriptions of things I feel would be selling points. The elevator, the vintage kitchen, Banner press cabinet & even the loft. This is an awesome building & if I bought it the first thing I would do is turn it back into a general store. Love the old pictures.
    There is another building down the way (1008 Milam St.) that is also for sale but it looks like it has had most of the interior remodeled…….

    Nice looking building with some nice details on the outside. I wish they wouldn’t have painted the brick and left it as it was originally!
