Vissering Mercantile Building

The Vissering Mercantile building shown here was located at the southeast corner of Chestnut and Sixth Streets. The building had a millinery store on the corner with a grocery store immediately to the south followed by an appliance store. The stores were interconnected inside with huge archways.

The building was destroyed by fire in 1952 and rebuilt. Today the site is occupied by Doc's candy and soda fountain. The other buildings are unoccupied.
