Description

The building at 49 South Main Street in Winter Garden, Florida. Evidence suggests that this commercial building was constructed around 1912 and was originally two stories high. In the 1920s, the second story was removed as a result of fire damage. It was once the Piggly Wiggly grocery store and later McCord's Feed Store. Research indicates that Luther Willis Tilden may have developed the building and that W. B. Burch and William Story published the town's newspaper, The Town Crier, from this building for a time.
