The adobe bricks in the southernmost walls of the Sutler's Store in Camp Verde were laid in 1871. Built and briefly run by early-day Yavapai County financier Huge Richards, the Sutler's Store is the Verde Valley's oldest standing commercial building. After its construction, it remained the area's only viable mercantile business until the mid-1870s. The sutler provided items to the troops that were not available through the military, and it supplied soldiers and settlers with groceries, dry goods, mining supplies, animal feed, and even bottled water.
