Inscription.  This building was originally constructed in 1900.

The most notable occupant at this site was the Belmont Bar, a rough and raucous local drinking establishment during the 1950s and '60s.

The 1930s storefront is of an "art deco” character that has a nicely detailed polychromatic brick facade with shaped parapet, quoins, and inset panels of herringbone patterns.

Larry and Rene Yarbrough purchased the building in 1983 and established Pioneer Printing a few years later.
