Inscription.  A tavern site since the 1820s, the Mountain House Hotel & Tavern hosted guests here from 1856 to the 1880s. This sandstone building, erected for the second Home Bank, was originally topped by a distinctive turret, removed in 1959 while Prince Drug Store was here. The two storerooms beside the corner were the earliest locations of S. A. Shore, Norton's Jewelry, and Piggly Wiggly and Kroger grocery stores. Church's Barbershop occupied the basement from 1911 to 1955, and the Girl Scouts met upstairs.
