This poor building. In recent years, it's housed a Tex-Mex restaurant, an American-style chop house, a Lebanese bistro, and god knows what else. Today, it's a pricey place called Morgantown Flour and Feed (lets see how long this link lasts).
The notable thing about this is the signage, which pays homage to the utilitarian past of this building.
The original Morgantown Flour & Feed Co. sign above the second floor has gotten a fresh coat of paint. I can make out only the major part of the remainder, which reads "Gold Medal Flour."
Built between 1904 and 1906, it was originally the Kincaid and Arnett Feed and Flour Building. If you really want to delve into the early details of this building, you should check out the National Register of Historic Places form (PDF).
The warehouse and wholesale business area was once known as Durbannah, named for F.M. Durbin, who first developed this area in the 1840s.
