This wonderful building is still owned by the Spencer and Ogden family who bought the building from Charles De Laval in 1881 and then added the second floor in 1885. The building has been restored. Previous tenants included realtors, an import business, drug stores, a home furnishing business and dentists, including one who dubbed himself "Painless Parker".
