This structure was built by H.C. Hasemeier Co., a clothing and dry goods manufacturer. From 1888 until 1933, it was The Boston Store, carrying fine goods from the east coast. In 1933, the building was purchased by the Vigran family as Julian's, a women's clothing store. The second floor façade was covered with fiberglass panels during the 1960s in an effort to give a more "modern" appearance. In 1990, Center City Development assisted the owner in removing the fiberglass panels to reveal the historic façade visible today.
