(70) 314 Main Street

314 Main"The Orcutt Building, now Bates Tavern, replaced the Mander Building where John Mander had a store and at one time the post office. Orcutt was Mander's son-in-law and opened a restaurant and hotel in the new brick building. At one time Fred Baumer had a bakery and catering business here."

Images (links open in a new window):
♦ I'm not sure about this one but tentatively placing it here, pending further research: the drugstore of Gordon & Buchanan in 1898, and a 1900 street scene showing the A.D. Buchanan drugstore at mid-block or slightly south. (As a point of reference in that street scene, the Strattan building can be seen at right of the man on horseback.)
♦ The Orcutt building housed the Hobart CafĂ© in 1929.
♦ A street scene from Hobart High School's 1967 yearbook, showing Bates Grill & Hotel in the Orcutt building; also, an undated menu and 5¢ token from the Bates business.
