This c. 1900 house was Ogle Harris' Store. Harris, son of a slave, first sold homemade ice cream from the house's since-razed summer kitchen. In c. 1910 he moved his family from the building, which was then his residence, and began selling groceries, meat, and produce. Harris' sons ran the grocery after he died. The store closed in 1972.
