The Mysterious History of the Ridley Department Store

The Inside the Apple blog has a fascinating history of the former E. Ridley & Sons department store at the corner of Orchard and Grand.

Apparently the building is up for sale and can be yours for a mere $25 mil! Let's hope the purchaser keeps this historic building intact.

Read the history - full of eccentrics, fraud, and murder - here. Then come back October 5 when we host the authors of the Inside the Apple book for a Tenement Talk.
