Marker Text Local stonemason I.W. Walley erected the rock walls of this masonry commercial building in 1899. A cast iron storefront and decorative brickwork enhance the plastered facade. The two story structure was built for Wesley Smith Harris (1854-1930), who ran a furniture store and funeral home here. The two businesses were associated because at that time furniture manufacturers made casket parts. Ben Estes later took over operation of both concerns.
