The Jitney Jungle grocery store chain was
founded in 1919 by the McCarty and Holman
families. In 1933, Jitney No. 14 held its
grand opening in this Tudor Revival
building designed by Emmett Hull. The
building, called "The English Village,"
was enlarged in 1941 by architect N.W.
Overstreet to include a drug store,
beauty parlor, and dress shop. Author
Eudora Welty was a regular customer. The
current building, which is still a hub of
local commerce, retains the original
"No. 14" lettering above the entrances.
