Built in 1854, the Little Red Store has served throughout the years as a dwelling,  railroad station, post office (now the oldest remaining post office building in Milwaukee County), general store, library, harness shop, plumbing shop, and oil company.

It has housed and outlived many of the trades that were responsbile for Wauwatosa's earliest commercial history and the development of the city as we know it today. The Little Red Store now stands alone as the oldest remaining commercial building in Wauwatosa.
