                                     This Building was once owned by the Tirmenstein Family and the Rosco     
                                Steck Family of Benton, Mo. The small buiding to the left was used as a Post 
                               Office when Robert Tirmenstein was Post Master of Benton. Leona Tirmenstein
                               used the buiding later as a dress shop along with other womens apparel. Chester
                               Mack later owned the building and ran his Printing business out of it.  The Mill
                               was torn down by Robert Tirmenstein and he later built his residence there.
