Built by Monroe Zalkind in 1917 and was used continuously as a clothing store until 1996.
Here is a brief history of the clothing store on that site:
Sam Zelken/Zalkind owned a men’s clothing store from 1917 to 1933.
1933 –  St. Clair, Crumb & Irgens owned the shop
In 1969 it was sold to Victor Johnson and Charles Bullock who owned Johnson & Bullock until Vic’s death in 1996.


Minnesota Avenue 1928

Upstairs housed Lindquist photography and then Voss studio in the late 1930s and early 1940s.

Now the home of Lane Studios and the Coffee Studio.

The left half of the building held E.E. Kruger Drugs, Ben Franklin Store from 1935-1947, Meyer’s Shoes from 1961-96, the Pope County License Bureau, and now Glenwood State Bank.

    Fantastic information. I am proud to have owned the best building in downtown Glenwood! The quality of construction in this 100 year old building is incredible-it has 14 foot ceilings on the first level with beautifully preserved ceiling tiles, excellent original hardwood floors and nice brick work. I lived in the apartment upstairs for 7 years (2003) and afterwards have either rented it or used it for photo sessions.
