From Willard's Furs and Fashions Website:
Hiram Willard founded the business in 1864 at the corner of 1st and Main Street where it is still located today. Prior to moving to Marshalltown, Hiram worked at a tannery in Galena, Illinois owned by Jesse Grant. Jesse's son, Ulysses Grant, also worked in the business before the Civil War broke out. Hiram would take trips into the Dakotas and Montana where he would trade beads and pearls with the Native Americans for pelts that he would bring back to Marshalltown and process into goods he would sell to the people in this area.
