A unique opportunity for a workspace and storefront!
Built in 1901 by Basil James Bowden, the grocery store has remained in Bowden family since it was built and is believed to be the first grocery store in Wayne County! After the grocery closed, the store functioned for many years as a community center.
The property also includes a large, metal clad wired workshop space in the rear. The store sits on a corner lot comprising nearly 3 acres and retains much of its original shelving and tin ceilings. The original storefront is currently disguised by a modern awning and faux façade, but is intact.
