Marker Text Built by 1875, this commercial structure first housed the Burton Farmers Co-op. In 1903, German immigrants William Dallmeyer and Joe Steiner opened a mercantile business, which was in operation for over fifty years. The store housed the first telephone in town and served as a local cotton marketing center. Features of the building include a double-gable roof, wooden balustrade, and a 1913 addition with a false front and recessed central entry.
