The First Business building was. Joseph Bodman’s office, just east of the first house, on the southwest corner of South Morgan Street and West Bodman Street, where Glennon’s Tavern is now located. Temporarily, it served all Bement’s needs including the post office and railroad depot. Joseph had a warm office with a bedroom in the back, he reported in a letter back home.
