Fruta Crush is located in a building built by Henry William Davis in 1890 for his wife Rachel, for her millinery (hat making) business and shop. HW and Rachel had 21 children. Many of the daughters worked with their mother in the shop. Both parents died in 1908 and the youngest daughters managed the shop until 1930. Many businesses have occupied the building, including a Maytag Washing Machine company, an optometrist, and a pet shop.
