W.E. Rowe Building, Calliope Village, Hawarden, Iowa.
This store originally stood at the north end of Hawarden's Main Street. W. E. Rowe had his harness shop in the south end until 1906. The south end held a coffee shop for many years. Lettering on the facade was uncovered during the restoration and was repainted as it was. The coffee shop area now contains the interior of an old Hawarden Post office which had been placed in storage for over 60 years. The mail sorting bins have the names of area families along the original mail routes around Hawarden. The north room contains a small reception area and museum.
A hand-created pen and ink grain pattern was added for unique texture. Check out the high-resolution preview!
