616 Fayetteville was an early 20th century house that, in the late 1930s, was partially converted to a retail storefront (616 1/2 Fayetteville.) This storefront initially housed a cigar and tobacco sales shop, but by the 1940s housed Walter Tutt's Shoe Shine parlor. By the late 1950s, this had become Buck Jones' Shoe Shine parlor. Ms. Carrie Haywood lived in the residential portion of the building through most of the mid-20th century. By the 1960s, 616 1/2 had become Ward's Sport Shop / Shoe Shine parlor.

In the late 1960s, this became the Eagle Sport Shop prior to demolition in ~1970. Since the early 1980s, part of the site has been occupied by the back of a single-story medical office complex, currently occupied by a dialysis center and a dentist's office.
