No building history on file. Occupants of the site (in different buildings) include J.S. Pinkussohn cigar Store, 1901-1910; Demos Brothers Restaurant, 1920-1950; and Marcus Rexall Drug Store, 1960s. The popular drug store burned down,* and in the 1990s, South Carolina National Bank (16 Broad Street) gradually expanded its facilities to occupy the whole north side of the block of Broad Street from East Bay to State Streets. SCNB then merged with Wachovia, which still occupies the building. (Source: The Old Codgers' Address Book, 1900-1999)

*After the drug store building burned down in the 1960s, there was controversy about the size of what to build in its place. A temporary garden was developed. (Per P.C. Coker, Oct. 2013.) See photos of the garden, 2013.017.2.
