HISTORY: Mrs. Wilke had a millinery shop in this building in the early 1900's. It seems to have been occupied by a woman's clothing store throughout the years. In the early 1950's, the store was owned by the Yelvington family. Mr. Yelvington was a Texas author. It was he who named the store the "Surrey Village Dress Shop". In 1955 Anna & Otto Uecker owned the dress shop. We have a Christmas greeting from them sent in 1955.

In 1980 the building along with the drugstore area were remodelled by placing rock over tin. It was the property at that time of Alice and George Plummer.
