Craig Mercantile Company resided in the building originally. Steam engines parked in front of the store to fuel with water from the Missouri River. Meanwhile, workers offloaded merchandise for the store including Peter Schuttler Covered Wagons, lumber, hardware and general household goods. The United States Post Office delivered mail from the same location. Tragedy struck in 1916 when the building and its neighbor, Hub Saloon, partially burned. Soon afterwards, Craig Mercantile was rebuilt and continued with its varied tradition.
Today, Lot 1 Block 1 contains a fly fishing lodge that's centrally located on the world-class Missouri River.
While rustic in appearance, you'll find The Trout Shop Lodge to be modern, neat, clean, comfortable, fun and most importantly.....only a few steps from the Missouri's wild trout.
