City Directories and History: In 1912 this appears to be the approximate location of Hardin and Queens, a large brick commercial building. Next door in the same building was listed a dry goods and grocery. In the late 19th and early 20th century the east side of South Congress street expanded rapidly with new brick stores from the county jail on the corner to the Harden’s store at the far end of the block.
Part of the Renwick building now houses Price’s Prescription Drugs run by Dr. Carolyn Price at 116 S. Congress. “Mr. Jim” Aiken’s barbershop was for many years at 118 S. Congress in the small space now occupied by H&R Block. The left side of the Renwick building is now Young’s Fashions at 112 S. Congress Street. [Courtesy of J.M. Lyes]
