The building was constructed in 1861- Brick smoke building was built before The battle of Antietam –1862. ? However, when the building was nearly complete, but not yet serving its intended purpose. It was selected by the Union Army as a hospital Just prior to the Battle of Antietam September 1862. It then became a hospital were it is estimated that 200 men were treated. It is therefore, significant for its association with this important Civil War battle and as a store, one of the largest in the county.
