The Crowell-Berryhill Store c.1897. Originally built by Star Mills, a local company that produced grits and mill feed. Then it was sold to M.L. Alexander, who sold it one year later to William M. Crowell, but he stayed as a clerk for Mr. Crowell. Once again it changed hands a couple of times until 1900 when Ernest Wiley Berryhill (1865-1931)took over the store and bought it outright by 1907. He owned and operated his store here until his death in 1931. He was married to Gussie Newcomb in 1894 and lived in the beautiful house I posted a couple days ago. This store was a fixture in the Fourth Ward community as it was nestled on a corner and surround by neat rows and rows of Victorian homes for many blocks. Today it serves as a restaurant by the name of "Alexander Michael's", or "Al-Mikes" as the locals know it.
