Built in 1935, Arthur LaPrade designed this building to accommodate two businesses.  Built in the typical style of the 1903’s, the building features simple economic lines including a flat front to accommodate signage and an awning directly over the sidewalk.  The 30 feet wide by 134 feet long building is constructed of brick with concrete foundations and a flat roof featuring parapet walls.  In the 1970’s, the original brickwork was covered by a plaster repair.

The first business this building housed was a Sprouse-Reitz Co. five-and-dime store.  The now-defunct chain once had over 470 stores throughout the western United States.  Sprouse-Reitz advertised themselves as the “variety store” and did offer a large variety of inventory to the citizens of Winslow.

The current owner, Tess Kenna, is currently renovating the building and intends to turn it into an art gallery featuring local artists.
