W.V. McConnell Building - Crockett native William Van McConnell (1855-1919) built this victorian commercial structure soon after he purchased the site in 1891 from Maj. J.C. Wooters, a former mayor of the city. Known for his wit and his Irish stories, McConnell opened a mercantile store here which developed into a business that lasted until 1973. A landmark on the square for many years, the McConnell Building now serves as a reminder of Crockett's early growth.
