Uptown Store Front View
History of the Uptown Store Shops:

In the mid 1850's Augusta had a prosperous business district on the riverfront consisting of stores, hotels, saloons and other services for steamboat passengers.

Frederick Wencker owned and operated a general store on what was then Water Street. He later ran the post office and a hotel at that location.

In the early 1870's the Missouri River began to change its course and move away from town. Frederick left his riverfront location and moved "uptown" to the corner of Locust and Lower Streets.

Today this historic building is known as the Uptown Store and is home to Stone Ledge Antiques.  Above the store, in what was once living quarters, is The Stone Ledge Guest Suite.
