This building was built in 1952 on what had been part of the Engell Dairy property.
Paul Resop built the stucco building for $16,000. It was 180 ft. long and had 10 units. The Resop Brothers occupied the building until about 1963.
It appears that between 1953 and 1960 there was an addition made to the east.

House of Vision Opticians: 1955-70
