  • 1. A historic account of the McConnell-McGuire Building<br />1890-2010<br />TIMELINE<br />
  • 2. Mercantile (1890-1900)<br />
  • 3. 1890-1900<br />The McConnell-Maguire building was completed Nov. 27, 1891. Upon finishing, the building held three floors of merchandise. According to The Moscow Mirror in January 1892, the McConnell-Maguire Company’s aim was to” supply all the wants of the people and at a small profit.” The company was one of the biggest retail stores Moscow has ever seen. However, the company went bankrupt during the Panic of 1893 and the business closed. <br />
  • 4. Williamson’s (1910-1920)<br />
  • 5. 1910-1920<br /> Nathaniel Williamson moved his store The Greater Boston from 408 S. Main to the McConnell-Maguire Building in 1911. Upon arriving there, he greatly expanded his business and opened it as the Williamson Center. The business sold a variety of merchandise such as furniture, dry goods, shoes, and clothing. He expanded the business to the adjoining Brown Block building where he housed a restaurant and grocery and hardware store. On the Williamson Center hung an electric sign the length of the building that could be seen from the Viola grade. It also had a working elevator from the basement to the third floor.<br />
  • 6. 1920-1930<br /> Williamson’s lease of the McConnell-Maguire Building ended in 1920, and the business ended. The building was mainly vacant for almost the whole decade minus a short time in which a Piggly Wiggly grocer occupied the first floor. In February 1928, a Portland contractor announced they would be remodeling the building to house 45 apartments. The remodel began on Feb. 16, the day of Nathaniel Williamson’s funeral. The building was then known as the Thatuna Building.<br />
  • 7. 1930-1940<br /> Agricultural Adjustment Administration was a government agency that was enacted in 1933 through President Roosevelt’s New Deal program. It was established to help farmers during the depression. AAA offices were located in the Thatuna Building during the 1930s. <br />
  • 8. Brown’s Furniture Store (1940-1950)<br />
  • 9. 1940-1950<br />The Louis Strauss family of Coville, Washington began Brown’s furniture on the first level of the Thatuna Building in the mid-1940s. <br />
  • 10. 1970-1980<br /> The McConnell-Maguire Building was entered into the National Register of Historic Places in March 1978.<br />
  • 11. 2000- Now<br /> The McConnell-Maguire Building currently is the location for Mingles Bar and Grill on the first level. On the second level, a nationwide discount retail agency called Assist 2 Sell takes residence. The third floor is still home to apartments. <br />
