LETTER: Mitzi's building was early doctor's office
Historian writes that Mitzi's store is in what was once Doctor's Office, next door to, but not first, Adair County Court Clerk's office
I think the last part of the article about Mitzi's location being in the 1st county clerk's office is in error.
I have read that the 1st county clerk - Wm.Caldwell - hada small brick clerk's office where the library is now located. Lampton, a bricklayer had built it.
That office was incorporated in the house built there and lived in byRuth Burdett. Her book may be the place I read about that. Her house was torn down when the library was built.
I think the next clerk's office was where the old jail was located. I heard that the building Mitzi is in was at one time a doctor's office, but, I don't when that was.
Thanks, Mrs. Kolbenschlag, the clarification is noted in Mitzi's ADphoto. I wrote the original line about the store's location, and I'm happy you provided this information. In any case, the little building is a historic treasure. - Ed Waggener
