Mountain View owes a huge thanks to Terry Klein. He put so much hard work into keeping the history of the Weilheimer Building alive - not only that he put it on display for everyone to see during his long renovation process.

Like the article says, the Weilheimer General Store Building is the oldest commercial building standing in Mountain View - and probably older than anything in all of Los Altos, Palo Alto or Sunnyvale too!

I'm sorry to hear Terry wasn't able to complete his dream after so many years, but am very happy to know the new owner will carry on the important task of giving this venerable landmark a new life.

Thank you Terry!
