This building was built to be an ice cream parlor by Orrie Lyons with bricks made in the cement block factory once located on Oak Street. It has been home to many businesses but was best known as Schafer and Son Meat Market. In 1966, Schafers moved their business to M22 and Lake St. the building stood empty for many years until it was purchased in 1990. The storefront space was donated to serve as the temporary home of the Arcadia Area Historical Society. It has recently been renovated.
