Long Description:
The Utah State Historical Marker, mounted on the front of the building, reads:

99 North Main

This building was one of the earliest general merchandise stores built in Logan, and it continued as such until 1872. The owner sold the building and his merchandise and joined the historically significant "cooperative" movement sponsored by the Mormon Church. From 1872 to 1903, the building housed what was one of the most important businesses in the history of the valley, Zion’s Cooperative Mercantile Institution; the coop was begun by Brigham Young in the late 1860's. The building survived a major fire and was then divided into two. For 70 years, it housed First National Bank of Logan on the north side; the south was occupied by Woolworth’s. The building has since housed a variety of business.
