Though it has been painted over, the ceiling is made of brass, possibly from the Mullins Co. of Salem. The paint is peeling, but that is how I like my old buildings. I was enchanted!
They also have a list inside of all the businesses that have ever called this building home:
William Fluckinger's Market 1915
Ohio Grocery Specialty Co. 1923
Johnson and Howard Barbers 1927
John Rowe Wholesale 1934
National Furniture 1937-This one has my interest because it was the National Furniture Store in East Liverpool in 1973 that a terrible triple murder occurred. Did this National Furniture move from this location to an ultimate death in East Liverpool?
Robbins Furniture 1940
Maytag Morrow Co. 1948
Salem Glass and Mirror 1957
I went in and talked to the owner. She was really nice. She thinks they are going to sell to the Church beside them and they want to knock down the building and make it a PARKING LOT. Who would have guessed.
