Sanborn Insurance maps reveal that this building was constructed prior to the turn of the twentieth century. The Kitely & Vyse clothing store was located in the building during its earliest years. It also housed Longmont’s first J. C. Penney store beginning in 1917. Lute’s Drug Store, in business here from 1936 to 1982, is the building’s longest and best remembered retail tenant.”
