Victorian 1-1/2-story, rectangle frame house, ca. 1874, with a hipped roof and glassed in porch. Vinton Amos, a Morrison blacksmith, lived here ca. 1880. The Peinzes ran a grocery/market and real estate office at the corner of Bear Creek Ave. and Stone St. This building currently houses Beso de Arte restaurant. Vinton Amos was a blacksmith on Bear Creek Avenue, Morrison's main street for many years. The building was built by a Mr. Holmes, whose wife was the librarian for many years. Carl and Mercy Peinze lived there from 1923 until the 1960s. Mr. Peinze built the tiny, quaint Morrison library on this same property, which is still in use as a shop.
