This building was erected in 1913 and contained a billiard parlor and restaurant on the ground floor, and the Midway Hotel upstairs. The Melbourne Times moved from its Front Street location to this building almost as soon as it was finished, and remained here about four years.

Following Prohibition, the billiard parlor became Shorty's Bar, and it is said that mobster Al Capone once played pool here.

When the local school needed more classrooms (1916-1920), students had to attend some classes in this building as well as in the Methodist church across the street and in City Hall.
