Did you know the Lewiston City Library consists of three structures?
The original building was constructed in 1896 and owned by E. P. Doris, who moved from Farmington, Washington to open Cash Hardware. It was purchased by Robert “Bob” Erb, a former employee of Cash Hardware, in 1910 and expanded upon to house other businesses. After opening a second store in the Orchards in 1996, the downtown location became Cornerstone Interiors, under the same ownership, and still operated as Erb Hardware Headquarters. Up until the purchase of the building by the library, it was the oldest business operating from the same location in the City of Lewiston.
