Must have been 213 N Main. It’s still there, as a florist/garden center. Just a modest brick storefront from about 1900.

I’m wondering if we have the right address. The 1922 map shows this building as a garage. Could have been converted later, but there is a movie theater to the south. Not sure if I should add that one as a new entry.
