The two-story, six-bay white brick 7-11 store is one of the oldest buildings in the Historic District. It was originally built in 1876 as a dwelling (for C.M. Floyd).
It has been used a neighborhood food store for many years.
For less than a week in April, 1959, "Beatnik" Bill Walker operated a Greenwich Village-type coffee house, called "Coffee 'n' Confusion" at the site.
In 1982, the 7-11 replaced the Nicholas Superette. (Although the area is zoned residential, the commercial use of this building preceded the zoning.)
