Inscription.  This corner commercial space with apartments above was the quintessential 1890s city building model. Bricklayer Hy Debus built this structure for Schatz's Grocery. The Star of David topping the façade celebrated the Schatz family faith, and the building was used as an assembly place for the Jewish community. The grocery changed hands several times until it became a tavern in 1956. Today's tavern, Cat's Meow, was established in 1977. The stained, leaded glass is original.
