Mercantile as art center
26 September 2010 2 Comments
Yet another interesting possibility for an art center. Don’t know anything about it, but walk by the building on the north side of downtown Grand Island a couple times a week. Wonder about the building’s history; a mercantile in Grand Island, Nebraska?
Course, we’d still much prefer the location to be a little ways out in the country, per our oft-repeated, Kathleen Norris inspired philosophy of the Plains.
Adding: Some history on the mercantile can be found here in the History of Hall County, thanks to Google Books.
Adding again: It appears as though the building is used (owned?) by Skagway. I’ve seen their box trucks parked at the loading dock a few times since originally posting this.
