The Idelkope Building

Built almost a century ago, the Idelkope Building has sat across from the Ford Manufacturing Plant, diagonal from the Great Northern Railway Station, and just north of, of course, a bar. In its earliest years, it was a food store, its later years, a bookstore, and now it’s a jogging store. My, how times change when it comes to necessities of life. The building has been nicely restored, though, including opening the south-facing windows that had been closed for at least thirty years.
