The Huske Hardware House Restaurant and Brewery has been an historic downtown icon for over a decade but thebuilding itself has an even richer 113 year old history and is a part of the National Register of Historic Places.  The original building, (pictured here) in front of an unpaved Hay Street, was built in 1903 by Benjamin R. Huske as an all-inclusive department hardware store- the proverbial Home Depot or Lowe's of its era.  The HHH brand was established in 1904 and the hardware store stayed in operation for 67 years.  The original Victorian-era masonry frame was added to over the years to accommodate the booming business.  It expanded upwards an additional story and to the west (bar side) to add three more store fronts.

Between 1970 and 1996, the building took on a variety of tenants, from furniture merchants to jewelry stores.  However, in 1996 Dr. William Baggett renovated the east side of the building to create the restaurant and brewery of today and we have continued the restoration into its current pristine condition.  We hope you enjoy the chef's features and come to join our loyal team often for superb food, exceptional service, live entertainment and memorable experiences.


In the spirit of the original Huske Hardware House, let us build you a good time!
