Blair's Ferry Storehouse

Blair’s Ferry Storehouse was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1977, located at 800 Main Street.  This storehouse was built to support a large riverboat trade. The storehouse served as a collection and distribution center.  James Blair built this structure around 1835. 

In the 1880’s the building gradually changed to uses other than that of a retail store.  Legend has it that it served among other things as a church, a dance hall, and a packing house. About the turn of the century many changes were made. The building was partitioned into apartments.
