The Simoni Store

In 1892 Sarah Jones purchased these lots and her husband, L.G. Jones, built this two-storey structure, which housed at various times Benn & Jones bar, Miller & Legace drugs & novelties, Mrs. Doyle's dry good, groceries & notions, a feed store, and a meat market. On the upper floor were lodge and hotel rooms. Tony Simoni moved from Madrid to Cerrillos in 1914 and in 1919 for $3,000 he bought this building from E.W. Callender. Tony ran the grocery and August Probst the meat market. Upon Tony's death in 1956 this building was run by Edith & Corina Simoni until their passing. 2014 - now owned by Russel Saimons.
