Inscription.  Apothecary and druggists' shops were on this corner from the 1820s to 1900, with Drs. T. C. Murrell, J. W. Grisard, and J. C. Shapard's offices upstairs during the 1880s. The street level housed Franklin Grocery and Bakery until the 1930s. The spacious upstairs was used for large civic gatherings and parties while leased by the Business and Professional Women's Club. The old building was razed in 1949 for the building of the Oldham Theater.
