The Smith and Weller Building is an historic structure located in New London, Iowa, United States. Charles W. Smith and C.B. Weller bought the lot on which the building sits for $300 in 1872.[2] The building itself was built sometime before 1879 when Smith and Weller sold the lot to Sam Keiser and W.S. Workman for $2,500.[2] The structure was designed in the Italianate style and features simple brick patterned arches. Keiser and his wife owned the building until 1907 when they sold it to the Knights of Pythias for their lodge. A hardware store occupied the main floor and the lodge was on the second floor. The Knights of Pythias sold the building in 1946 to Otis and Mae Maginnis. The building has housed a bar in the intervening years. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1]
