The apartments rented out but the retail space is vacant. I know that at one point there was a carriage dealer and then a horseless carriage dealer in the building. In my own lifetime have seen many businesses come and go. A coffee shop, an antique store, and many more.
The building is located on West 7th Street in St. Paul between Walnut and Chestnut street. Just across the street from what used to be a Dairy Queen.
