Dry Goods Store, Hannibal

I researched the original purpose of this fascinating building, and as far as I could tell, it operated as a dry goods store. It is very old, regardless, built of rubble wall construction. It went through a series of other uses over the years. As recently as 2016 if not later, the building had a short cantilevered shed roof that came out to shelter the first floor doors. You can still see the residue on the façade in between the first and second floors.

While looking like they could have at one point been part of the same complex, 208 Bird Street was most recently the Badger Biergarten and Cheese House. The building at 210 does not appear to have ever been part of the most recent business.
