From the 1840's, this building stood among others of its type at this historic downtown intersection. Known traditionally as "Kinfolks' Corner," the area was the meeting place for generations of citizens from Columbus and neighboring Alabama counties. Its importance is sustained by the redevelopment of this section which includes a U.S. Department of Interior National Historic Landmark District. Carson McCullers (1917-1967), Columbus-born author of international renown, alluded strongly to this culturally diverse corner in her celebrated 1946 novel, The Member of the Wedding.
