Wisconsin Historical Collections, vol. xv: “Pioneering in the Wisconsin Lead Region” by Theodore Rodolf: “The summer following, I began the erection of a brick store and dwelling house at Mineral Point, which was, I think, the first solid brick building put up there. . . . the lumber used in my building was bought in Galena of M. M. Maughs, and had to be transported by teams to Mineral Point. Dr. John Vivian . . . occupies the house and store which I built in 1842, having purchased my drug business and property at the time of my removal to La Crosse in 1853.” This building is included in the Wisconsin Architecture and History Inventory under record number 59268.
