It was later used by Eliason Cigar Factory in 1910. Eliason made “Senator” cigars that featured notable locals such as Frank Eddy of Glenwood and Knut Nelson of Alexandria.

In 1940 the Larson family re-opened a furniture store in this building and operated it until they sold it to Merlin Adolphson in 1971. The Building is now occupied by American Solutions for Business.

The Pope County Tribune was published in the south end of the building for many years.
