This year's Christmas ornament features another of our historic buildings: the Howes and King Building at 606 Bank Street. Now it is the home of the Idaho Silver Shop. Original structure was erected in 1884 by owners Henry E. Howes and Horace G. King, early Wallace merchants. These two men ran a grocery business and general store out of a log cabin at this site. After the 1890 fire, the building was rebuilt with bricks manufactured in Silverton.

In 2001, however, it was too warm, yet the soggy high school band still played on. The 2000 tree contest and the 2001 Little Miss Snowflake competition are also pictured, thanks to Debbie Angle.
