Dr. Louis Friedheim was a prominent doctor living here and practicing his animal clinic out of his father’s Friedheim Hall stables on East White Street. The house appears to have been constructed at the rear of the Caldwell’s original corner lot and may have been one of their investment properties. (The Herald had reported on June 25, 1902 – “Dr. Louis Friedheim left Friday for Paducah Kent., with the intent of locating for the practice of his profession. Louis is a excellent veterinary surgeon and we wish him success.) Later on Sept. 27, 1902 – “Dr. Louis Friedheim left Thursday night for Charlotte, where he will located for the practice of his profession, succeeding Dr. Trinder at Wadsworth Sons stables. Louise understands his business as a veterinary surgeon and will no doubt make a success in his new home.”
The Herald reported on Dec. 16, 1896 – “Through Alderman Poag, J.H. Toole submitted a request to erect a wooden store room on Caldwell Street to the rear of the old buggy factory. City Council refused this request.” (The location is approximately where the Millstone Pizza site is in 2017.)
The Herald Reported, Dec. 20, 1919 – “that Spencer, Sturgis and Cobb, have a contract with J.E. Heland to build two garage
buildings on Caldwell Street, on the property adjacent to the hotel building company. They will spend about $25,000. W.B. Jenkins of St. Charles, who is the brother-in-law of Rev. F.W. Gregg, will move to Rock Hill and lease one of the garages. Since the City is contemplating the widening of Caldwell St., the building will be moved back. The owners also own the corner lot on Caldwell and White with about 100 ft frontage on each.” (This was in the vicinity of this lot but further toward East White Street.)
The diary of Kate J. Hutchison, the owner of the Home Store states, Sept. 22, 1934 – “The home store’s people will move out the 14th of Oct. and Mr. Taylor….”settled with him over the Home Store – March 12, 1935 and later……” also April 10th, 1934 states “old man Jordan and Taylor paid their rent today, $40., the very last day….”
