Built circa 1921 as a store by/for Walton Robinson. Also used as a filling station.

On June 17, 2020, the front of the structure was entirely destroyed after some [intoxicated] teenagers crashed into the gas pumps, catching the structure on fire. Luckily, nobody but the car's occupants were injured as the crash occured at 2:30 a.m.

The original overhang was completely destroyed and was removed several days later.
