106 E. Central was built in about 1885 with Italianate detailing. From the time this building was built until at least 1910 this was J. C. Knott Groceries. Before opening his own store, Mr. Knott had clerked for William Terry (owner of the Terry Block Building) for three years. Mr. Knott built his business into one of the largest and best stocked stores in Bentonville.
The real happenings went on in the upstairs of this building where the Mohawk Club met. This was a social club for young men, 18-25, where they could dance on the birdseye maple floors with their dates. They had an organized dance every couple of weeks. They also had a pool table so the boys could show off their skills to their dates. The members of this group were said to be a credit to Bentonville, always being courteous, well dressed, and well groomed. The dues they collected paid the rent and other expenses.
In the 1920's to at least 1940, this was Puryear's Cash Grocery and Market. This building was originally L-shaped and also had an entrance on Main Street. From the 1950's until the 1970's, the building was the site of Oklahoma Tire & Supply Co. (OTASCO).
In more recent years it was Roy's Office Supply. Today the building houses Brosh Trading Company Jewelers.
