The Bouck building on Main Street Milbank was constructed in 1899. Note the wood sidewalks in front of the structure. Thomas Bouck was an attorney and served as mayor of Milbank for several years. As mayor he advocated that sidewalks be made of cement only. Read the three-part series on this influential Milbank pioneer in the Grant County Review.
