Inscription.  In 1903 this site was a cobbler's shop and later Miss Jessie Archer's Millinery (hat) shop. In 1931, it was operated as Will McElroys' Grocery. Devastated by fire in 1938 and rebuilt by Knowles Archer, the new building later housed an Ice Cream Parlor, Claude Gentry's weekly news (basement) and Raymond Miller Furniture & Appliance.
