Founded in 1865 and the oldest business in town, Waits Jewelry is located in an 1870 Italianate-designed structure. The building once served as a saloon and then a post office. It still features the original, pressed-tin ceilings. Today, not only can one find unique pieces of jewelry and fine china, but the business is also a monument to the legacy of E.F. Waits, who painted murals of the seasons above antique cherry and walnut display cases; hosted famed barnstormer, Roscoe Turner and his pet lion, Gilmore, in the store; and invented an airplane, an X-ray machine, and a wireless telegraph. Located at 410 North Fillmore Street.
