The single story building was fully rehabilitated to bring the building from a vacant structure to a fully operational and vibrant business that enlivens the street in Downtown Fort Scott. The exterior primary stone façade (north) and the red brick secondary facades were fully repointed. The north stone façade was labeled and disassembled from the storefront lintel to allow for full repair of the significantly deteriorated underlying steel support frame at the storefront opening. New back-up steel was installed and concealed by the original historic materials. The original stone was then reinstalled in its original location. All the stone was restored. Where the material was too deteriorated to be reinstalled, replica units were created at Phoenix Marble to match the original stone in size, profile, and material.
