Eddins General Merchandise, Byrd's Sundry Store

The decaying building adjacent to the Liles Building housed many different businesses.

In the 1920s and 1930s, the W.R. Eddins General Merchandise store was located there.

From the mid-1940s to mid-1950s, the building was home to Byrd's Sundry Store and The Diner Cafe.

At some time during the 1950s, the building supposedly housed a pool hall, but it has been difficult to locate information about or photographs of this era in the building's history.

Also, at an undetermined time, Tatum Furniture used the building for a discount retail store. That store's name remains on the windows of the building.


Today, the building is only a shell of what it once was.
