Central Roofing & Contracting / Safety Equipment Sales & Rentals / Wild Bill Grocery Store / The Dog Shack, 230 Huger Street: Fall 2010 (etc)   3 comments

Posted at 10:25 pm in business,restaurants,stores

Here's a little 1940s building by the tracks at the start of Huger Street (that's you-gee street for you out-of-towners..), that has been, I'm sure, many more things than this list over the years since it was built.

To be honest, I have to say I can't personally remember any of them. It's a section of street I drive very seldom, and some of the tenants, for instance, a roofer, are pretty invisible until you actually need one. The most recent operation seems to have been The Dog Shack hotdog restaurant, which apparently set up shop in April of 2010, and was definitely open as late as 18 June 2010, when a group of Columbia hotdog aficionadoes visited and gave it a mediocre grade.

While I was taking pictures a train rolled through, backing up traffic on Huger. I imagine working all day in that location would get old pretty quick.

  2. About 20 years ago it was a little -- and I do mean little -- party shop called Beer City.

  3. Safety Equipment Sales and Rentals was in the building one year before moving to a larger facility. A contractor then had the building, then a convenience store, then the hot dog stand and now a consignment store.

    Its actually a nice building but with limited in and out. As far as the trains.. 2-4 per day and earth shaking to say the least...
