If you think that your building has very little history, think again. Having recently researched a 5-story building which houses a diminutive store on street level with three apartments resting above it, unexpected history has been discovered. From the original purchase by a single woman in the 1820s to a gathering of citizens led by a senator who denounced loyalty to Lincoln during the Civil War, the hidden history of this quiet little building will soon be revealed in book form.
