Barber's Book Store

215 W. 8th - c.1910; remodeled c.1935 (DD)

 

This building was originally constructed around 1910, but was remodeled in the 1930's with an Art Deco facade. Over the years, the building has housed a cafe, a hotel, and most notably, Barber's Bookstore.  The bookstore closed in late 1997 and its contents were liquidated in the fall of 1998. Before long, the bookstore reopened.
