The vacant lot adjacent to the museum at the corner of Lake and Third was the site of the Ebert General Store. Owned and operated by William and Arthur Ebert, the store carried a complete line of mens' and ladies' clothing, shoes, dry goods, and general merchandise. The second floor of the building was used as a meeting place for the Masonic Lodge. The store closed in 1941, and the building was torn down.
