1904. Northwest corner of Eisenhower Dr. and Railroad St.

A classic, false-fronted clapboard store originally known as Cozens Mercantile, this store is most celebrated for President Dwight Eisenhower's patronage during his vacations at the nearby Byer's Peak Ranch to fly fish the Fraser River. Behind the store is a Post-modern open waiting shed for Amtrak passengers.
