The barber shop was at corner of Park (Park was between Stanford and Acacia, parallel to Acacia) and Euclid (now Main). Only about 8 foot square of it was run by Mr. Simon until he retired and sold it. It became a shoe repair shop owned and operated by Jesse and Mattie Crawford for 30 years. During that time it was enlarged. Then Mr. Surbrun bought it and it became a barber shop again for about 10 years. Saved from demolition it was moved here.

Although this building was never a medical office, the rear room contains dental and medical equipment displays. A medical bag, saddle, a prescription and a chair that belonged to longtime resident and pioneer physician Dr. Violett are also displayed.
