Long Description:
Hammond & Waring Grocery/Schwend & Mostyn Produce built this store in 1900 on the main street of Ouray, Colorado. It is still a family-owned grocery store with hours of 8 am to 6 pm, Monday thru Saturday, year round.

This structure is a Mesker Building (visit link) . Mesker Brothers of St. Louis were a primary supplier of anything from building parts to complete structures around the 1900s. Building could come on the railroad trains cars and be quickly assembled. This is the time of great industrial development in America. We often think of the mass production of automobiles, but the same occurred in buildings - both commercial and residential.
Year of construction: 1900
