1 Main, Parkville MO
The structure originally housed the Platte County Gazette newspaper building. Founded in 1885 by J.P. Tucker. The Gazette weathered the 1993 flood and 1999 coal train incident. Due to the train accident and structural damage, the building was torn down.
Backstory and Context
Ruth's Antiques, an antique store, owned and operated in the building after The Gazette moved locations. Ruth's Antiques ended operations following the 1993 flood, and The Gazette reportedly moved back in after another interim business (Aunt Ada's Country Store - 1996).
