Jarrett’s Printing Press & Barbee-Clark Tobacconists: This is the Lexington Street facade of the building that Central United Methodist Church announced in a recent congregant newsletter it will be demoishing.
The building is unique for its long history, and for the fact that the building’s outer shell covers another building, an old church. The original church was built in the 1880s, then became a laundry and dry cleaners.
Don’t know yet what Central United plans to do at the site. Will update with more info when I get it.
