Inscription.  A small, iron-clad room on this site was used as a hay shed in 1905 and a hearse house for Herrin & Steed Furniture & Undertaking in 1910. Grammer Shoe Shop occupied this building in 1924 and was followed by several restaurants and beer joints, one of the most popular being the Hot Spot Cafè operated by Johnny G. Maze. Before desegregation, black patrons used the upstairs, accessed by an outside stairway, and white patrons used the street-level room. Since the 1990s, a variety of shops have been here.
