Description and history
Michael Harrer, a Bavarian immigrant, built the building in 1874 for his family's home and his meat market. Harrer's meat market was the first in the village, then known as Niles Center, and the building is the oldest extant commercial building in Skokie. In addition, the building's Italianate style architecture is unique among Skokie commercial buildings. The Harrer family played a significant role in the development of Niles Center; Michael Harrer was a village trustee, and his son Adam was the first village president.
