Inscription.  In 1832, a portion of this lot was purchased by Peter Embrey, a free man of color. He eventually owned all of the lot to the corner of 2nd Avenue. In 1894, a hook and ladder truck pulled by horses used this site, where Ellis Days had built a new livery stable at a cost of $1,000. In the 1920s, the building was occupied by Winchester Mayor Joe Davis' truck line. Through the years, the narrow spaces on either side were used for offices and taxicab stands. A pool room, here in the 1950s, was followed by Reba's and Finch's Dry Cleaners.
