Crews were removing siding from a vacant vacuum cleaner shop and discovered a bit of history last week.
The Washington County Historical Society posted photos of an old Bayport, Minnesota, building – complete with painted advertising for Lyle's Grocery and Occident Flour.
The store, located at 169 3rd St. N., was once operated by Lyle Sockness in the 1930s and 1940s, the historical society notes.
BringMeTheNews reached out to the city of Bayport Thursday to find out more information about the future of the building, and whether or not the painted advertising will be preserved.
Bayport, which has a population of about 3,900 people, is located along the St. Croix River, south of Stillwater.
