106 East Main St., 1906.

106 East Main Street was built between 1891 and 1906; it housed the PW Vaughan drugstore in the 1900s.

Sometime in the 1960s, 106 East Main was likely torn down, and a squat one story building built in its stead; it is possible that the one-story structure was a major building reduction, rather than a demolition.
