Shawnee Furniture Store- Directly to the right of the Shawnee Odd Fellows Hall, you may have noticed a Frigidaire sign hanging from the overhang balcony-style porch is the A.T. Sharshall building. After the Fire of 1907, the building was built and operated by Frank Sharshal as a hardware store. The building was then home of the Shawnee Furniture Store, owned and operated by Chester Dishon for many years, though the storefront was closed. Much like the Blair Building, you might notice the orange-glazed brick. The brick is also the Iron Clay brick used in constructing the Blair Building, Tecumseh Theatre, and Harigle Garage. Interestingly, the second floor was used as a chiropractor office and funeral parlor at one point. The building is now known as the Dishon Building in memory of Shawnee history and community leader Rob Dishon.
