Cuba City's Ark

Advertising pieces such as these occasionally appear at local auctions or antique stores, but it is more difficult to find information about this business.

I have heard suggestions that The Ark was an arcade. A 1913-1914 business directory may also provide a clue. Ark Co. is listed as a general store, owned by G. C. Longendyke. Mr. Longendyke arrived in Cuba City in 1895 and owned several different businesses on Main Street.
