Area Description

Area Description: Historical Overview This property originally housed a two-story dwelling with bay windows. In 1915 Wallace W. Moore, a Tennessee native, and his wife purchased the property and began constructing what would become known as the Moore Building in 1916. Soon after he founded the W.W. Moore Furniture Company and began running the business out of his newly constructed two-story retail building. Over the years, the building was transformed into the H.L. Music House, selling Kimball pianos. In 1947, ownership of the building passed to Mabel Lucille Knapp (Wallace'd daughter), who then turned it into a dress store in the 1950s. The building was and finally transformed into a florist shop in 1968.
