A marker erected at the site describes the sidewalk, originally built in June 1903. Flagstone sidewalks began replacing wooden walkways in the mid-1890s. The stones, which weigh as much as 200 pounds each, were brought by rail from a quarry in Johnson County, about 68 miles away. Flagstone sidewalks were located along Caldwell, Center, Clifton, Front, Grove, Main, North, Railroad and Spencer streets and along Locust and Robinson avenues.
