This historic 2 story brick home was converted to commercial use in 1990 as a winery. Since then, J.Fires’, a high-end restaurant that drew clientele both locally and from St Louis, operated out of this property. It is a fantastic business location with frontage on Market Street and Kolmer Avenue and located across from Rural King and Arby’s. Also included on the property are a 36 x 62 barn with new roof and 33 x 47 outdoor patio/arbor area. The building has a capacity of 89 inside and 100 outside. The vintage brick building and barn provide a great ambiance for future use as a restaurant, winery, office building, retail store… the possibilities are endless. The building was updated in 2009 with a new roof and HVAC along with other updates.

Originally this home was a single-story cabin built on the northside of the city in Waterloo, Illinois by Benjamin Marney in 1822. Just twenty years later his daughter married George Ditch and they transformed the homestead cabin into the two-story brick structure that stands there today. Over the years this two-story farmhouse has been converted into the Waterloo Winery and then in 2008 into J. Fires’ Market Bistro
