Dr. P. [Powhatan] P. Trueheart built this building known as the "Doctors Block" in 1882. His son, Dr. Marion Trueheart, was a pioneer in the use of x-ray and the introduction of radium for cancer treatment at this location. The upstairs was occupied by the Sterling Telephone Company from 1897 to 1954. Jerald Bourgain purchased the building in 1990 and after renovation renamed it "The Emporium".
