Area: FultonBasics: Historic 100-year-old Building on Courthouse Square in Downtown Fulton
Property Dimensions: 80 ft deep x 50 ft wide (approx); 4,000 square feet
Info: This historic building in downtown Fulton has one of the absolute best locations on the entire courthouse sqaure. Situated at the corner of Main Street and South Gaither St., this property commands a view up and down two of downtown Fulton's prominent thoroughfares. The visibility to customers passing by on a daily basis is as good as it gets. Its location places it within easy walking distance of two important groups of people. The first group of people are the employees and customers who make use of the shops, government buildings, and services in downtown Fulton every day. The second group are the Itawamba Community College students - 3,000 strong during the day and 2,000 strong at night - barely 2 blocks away. Simply put, this building is easy to see and easy to get to for a whole host of people.
But it isn't just this building's location that makes it valuable. The building is recognized locally by the Itawamba Historical Society as a site of historical value. Well over 100 years old, this building has played a part in the growth and development of the Fulton, Mississippi story for well over a century. The greater part of its life was spent as a mercantile shop for the Gaither Brothers, whose names are proudly displayed on the red brick sidewalk in front of the store. In recent years, it has served as Lily's Cafe, a sandwich lunch counter restaurant meeting the needs of employees, students, and others just looking for a good place to enjoy good food and friendship.
The layout of the building provides multiple opportunities. It can easily be used as a retail location, a restaurant, an office building with room enough for several offices, or a service-based facility (karate instruction, aerobics center, etc.). The historical character of the building is felt both on the inside and the outside. A red brick facing blends nicely with large plate glass windows allowing for a great view of the people traffic and cars passing by outside. The sidewalk features the names of previous store owners and lists the legacy of the building's identity. Soon, a new owner will have the chance to etch his or her name into the history of this great building and into the downtown courthouse square itself.
