A merchant ledger for the Stone Store in Council Grove, Kansas. Built by Malcolm Conn in 1858 for mercantile business, the store was the second pioneer business erected in the current business district. Conn later became a community leader, eventually serving as county clerk and treasurer of the Town Company, a corporation that plotted and sold town lots. In 1866, Conn sold his store to Shamleffer & James. The second story housed the city library from 1898 to 1916.
