John Anderson was one of the earliest merchants in Jacksonville, selling supplies to pioneers from about 1852 onward. The Anderson & Glenn General Merchandise Store was a one-story brick structure erected around 1858, replacing earlier wooden buildings. The structure survived each of the major fires that destroyed many other downtown buildings, making it one of Jacksonville's oldest. In 1859, Anderson began a partnership with James Glenn, owner of many land holdings in Jacksonville and treasurer of the town at incorporation. They worked together and separately with other tenants at this site for several years. In 1884, the building briefly served as the post office. The building remained a general merchandise store until around 1900. Today it houses the J'ville Tavern, which previously occupied the Redmen's Hall.

Additional information about this structure can be found on the State of Oregon Inventory of Historic Properties form.
