Marker Text Crockett merchant William Monroe Patton (1855-1915) built this commercial structure about 1903. It was the fourth of six buildings he constructed on what became known as the Patton Block and is the only one that retains its original Mesker Bros. pressed metal storefront. In 1926 Wade Hampton Buchanan (1894-1978), a Crockett mechanic and businessman, bought the building and leased it until 1976 to a variety of local businesses. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1982
