We’re sure that many Doppler readers remember—and have fond memories of—The Book Case. The building was originally home to George Wilgress’s law office, constructed in 1894 and, prior to that, brothers John and Robert Scarlett ran a store in that approximate location, which was established in 1871. In more recent years the building was home to a restaurant—Café Wilgress—and is now a rental property simply called The Wilgress.
