1924-1958 Golden Rule Shoe Store owned by Roland E. Rominger was at this business address for 34 years, renting the room before the building was erected.

Research continues for early 1900 property owners as well as those in the 1800’s.  Researchers believe that previous owners of property in this block were John Dollahan, Charles Allender, and Dr William Garrard who had a home and office here.
