Trainors Store was constructed in 1896 as a butcher shop and grocery store. A succession of owners remodeled and by the 1970s most of the building’s historic character had been carelessly covered or modified.

In 2005 offending additions were removed and the two floors were repurposed to offices.

With its history restored adjacent to abundant parking, Trainors Store has attracted a succession of very successful firms – Microsoft, Nordic Consulting, and leading venture capital investors.

The building is served by a direct fiber link from the ATT central office.

Award: The Madison Trust for Historic Preservation.
