Walton and Willett Stone Store, also known as Cahill's Fish Market, is a historic commercial building located at Oswego in Oswego County, New York. It is a three and four story, limestone structure with a distinctive stepped gable roof on the banks of the Oswego River. The oldest commercial building in the city of Oswego, it was built in 1828 and first used as a ship chandlery.[2] In later years, it housed a newspaper office, customs collector, steamboat ticket and freight office, and warehouse. In 1945, it was purchased for use as a fish market.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.[1] It was the site of Coleman's Irish Pub until 2008.[4]

In June 2014, the building was ruled "dangerous" by city codes officers citing structural concerns.[5]
