In the late 1930s, Mr. Rosner constructed the building at the southwest corner of 15th and Main Streets. Originally it housed Becks Drug Store then Speedway Drugs with five apartments above. The rear office area off 15th Street was leased to Dr. Thomas Hanna until 1961.

In the mid-1970s it became a showroom for B&W Plumbing & Heating. From 2006 to the present the building is home to an upscale restaurant, Dawson's on Main.

Racecar drivers Eddie Sachs and Don Freeland lived above in the apartments on the 2nd floor at one time.
