(25) 437 – 439 E. Third Street

437-439 E Third"The two-story building next was built by Harry Livingston for the telephone company which used rooms upstairs. Livingston installed his hardware store downstairs. At various times the building has housed a barber shop, Red Cross quarters, restaurants, a craft shop, book store, party hall, and other short-lived ventures. Hobart Sports (437 E. Third St.) occupies the first floor, Walker's Printing in the basements (439 E. Third St., Lower Level) and offices upstairs."

Images (links open in a new window):
♦ Ann's Lakeview Ice Cream Parlor, owned by Ann and Ted Menn, operated at 439 E. Third in 1968.
♦ Hobart Sports, at 437 E. Third, in 1973.
♦ In 1988 the building housed Walker & Son Quality Printing and an enterprise called, apparently, The Dugout.

The Dugout was a sports card shop. around 89/90 ish , it moved further east (and across the street) down 3rd street into the Alwin Wild building where it stayed for a few years. IIRC the owners moved to Tennessee and opened a card store there.
