Marker Text John D. Baker (1848-1899) had this building constructed in 1882 for his dry goods store. A merchant and community leader, Baker later moved to Weatherford. His partner, James H. Doyle (1846-1933), became sole owner of the building in 1899. Later occupants included city national bank, grocers, dentists, and doctors. Built of native limestone, the high victorian italianate structure features arched window openings with fanlights and a simple stone cornice.
