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

26 South Main

This furniture store is the oldest one in Cache Valley. It began in the 1880's under the name of Enoch Lewis & Sons, but in 1890 this family business went into partnership with William Edwards who later became the sole owner and whose name the business bears today. The local newspaper carried this report about the owners on December 25, 1892, "These gentlemen... have the latest improved furniture, picture frames and moldings. They can handle plate and window glass of all kinds and sizes and put them in at reasonable figures..." The original façade is now covered with siding but the building has been nicely redecorated. The building still advertises a sign saying "Fine Home Furnishings Since 1880".
