This unique brick building, which features an Alamo-like pediment, was constructed in 1916 as an auto repair garage and gas station. From 1887 to the early twentieth century, a wood frame hardware store with false front stood here. Over the years, it has been divided and then rejoined a number of times to house a variety of commerical businesses including more than one cafe, a grocery store, a photography store, an appliance store, and a barbecue restaurant, to name but a few!
