See #2010.204.360 for photo of the store. / Plaque reads "The Hesston Hardware Building - This is the oldest building still standing in the business row on Main Street. It was built in 1887 just after the town was officially organized. This building housed the first post office in conjunction with the hardware store. William Rapp was the builder and it was first located on the west side of Main Street. One block north in 1904, it was moved to its present location and a blacksmith shop was added at the rear. The purpose of the move was because of he (sic) constant fire hazard due to its proximity to the livery stable. M. M. (Mox) and Grace Vogt spent nearly 54 years in the hardware business here.
