It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003 as part of the Mt. Pleasant Historic Commercial District (Davis, Hankins, & Van West, 2003). In 2006, the building was purchased by Jim Barrier and he spent the next two years renovating, restoring, and remodeling the building into an upscale eatery and nighttime entertainment venue.
Not only was it a pleasant place to stop and have lunch on the way back to Mississippi, the food was delicious. I had the fried catfish plate with collard greens, black-eyed peas, and cornbread. Yum.
