In April of 1910, well-known clothing proprietor, Harry Aarons, revealed his plans for the demolition of two buildings on the corner of River and Greenbush streets and the construction of a brand new, three-story structure where he would open a new clothing store.

On April 1, 1911, Aarons’ store had its grand opening. Since then the building has housed many types of businesses including: drug stores, insurance offices, dentist offices, law offices, and radio stations.

At one time, the upstairs housed the business offices of Edward Buckley, a prominent Manistee lumberman.
