Additional Information:This early 20th century commercial structure has some hints of the Classical Revival style particularly in the ornately detailed cornice/parapet with its central pediment. Relatively unaltered, this building is an excellent example of a ocmmon style of the period in Sturgeon Bay and is of particular significane because of the use of local limestone. The storefront and side entry is also of interest in that they, too, appear to be in close to their original state. A condition rare within the District.

12 Cedar in 1911 (A) The above noted location of Lot 9 was in the possession of F.W. McCullough in 1903. There were no buildings located upon it until William Long had a building placed on it in 1904. Long sold the property in 1905 valued at $1200 (with a $600 building). Frank Conjurske acquired the property in 1905-1906 and tripled the value of the improvements ($2100) making the total value of the property amount of $3,000.

Surveyed in 1982/updated survey card in 2005.
