The Pierce building was built by the Pierce family in the Village of Plover and functioned as a grocery and butcher shop from the time that it was built. The Pierce family was one of the most influential families in the Village of Plover. As with other older structures this one served as a wide variety of businesses after the Pierce family sold it. This included such things as a general merchandise store. The society moved the structure to its park in 1989. The intent was to use the building for two purposes. The front was to a print shop to display the society's wide collection of print machines. The large back portion was to be used to display agricultural equipment.
Unfortunately, the structure was burned by vandals in 1994. A portion of the front has been partially restored and will function as a print shop. However, the back portion is still without a structure. The plan is to bring a barn onto the site.
