    107 North Church Street is the ground floor space.
    107 1/2 North Church Street is the second story space, accessed by the stairwell at the right-hand door.

    In 1925 my grandfather, William "Willie" Frank Webster, ran the short lived Science Seekers Club billiards at 107 1/2 North Church Street. Also in this same space in 1921 was the first year home of the Webster family ran White Elephant Club, which moved to 213 1/2 West Main Street (the Jordan Building) in 1922. It remained open there until 1932.

    107 North Church Street
    Except for the years 1935 to 1941 when this was Lucky Strike Billiard Parlor owned by Edward Dewey Jones, the ground floor space maintained a continuous occupancy of normal businesses.

    107 1/2 North Church Street
    The second story space seemed to have a constant turnover of varying businesses.
