Orchard Building

Orchard Building - 1910

Charles Orchard bought this piece of property around 1908 from William Coalter. One of Coalter’s earliest businesses, “Coalter Hall and Opera House,” was on this site.  The Hall and Opera house served as a venue for most of Lander’s social activities, including operas and plays.  The frame building burned down shortly after Orchard purchased the property.  It didn’t take Orchard long to rebuild the historic building you see today. He rented the building out to local business people.  One of his earliest renters was the Epicure Market and Grocery.
