Some great historical info on our beautiful building will be coming very soon. If you have more interesting historical knowledge of what our antique mall once was, please share it with us.




Above are a couple of images from the G.A.R. (Grand Army of the Republic) Dinner that was held in our building back in 1889. Those prizes were some big ticket items for the day! This organization was started after the end of the Civil War & any person honorably discharged could join.

Just in case you didn't know about Caleb Marker for whom the G.A.R. Post above is named after, here is some quick info. He was a Union Field Officer in the 156th Ohio Infantry Regiment with the rank of Colonel & he died in 1869. He is buried in Preble County at the Old St. John Cemetery.

Some facts about the One Hundred and Fifty-sixth Infantry. — Col., Caleb Marker; Lieut.- Col., William Sayler; Maj., Alben L. Whiteman. This regiment was organized May 15 to 17, 1864, at Camp Dennison, to serve for 100 days. It was composed of the 34th battalion, Ohio National Guard, from Preble county; the 80th battalion, from Mercer county; and the 81st battalion, from Auglaize county. On May 20 Cos. A, B, C, D, E, F and H proceeded to Cincinnati, where they performed guard duty. Cos. G, I and K remained at Camp Dennison on guard and patrol duty until Morgan appeared in the vicinity of Cynthiana, Ky., when they were sent to Falmouth, Ky. The seven companies remained on duty at Cincinnati until July 18, when the entire regiment was brought together at Covington and moved to Paris, Ky. It was soon ordered to Cumberland, Md., arriving on July 31, and went into camp near that city. On Aug. 1 it had an engagement with the enemy near Falck's mills, with slight loss. It was mustered out on Sept. 1, 1864.
