The building, known as the “Paige Block”, was constructed around 1900. There were 2 apartments on the second floor and 2 on the third. The first floor housed Paige’s Restaurant and Nazef’s Shoe Store. There was a bar in the basement in the 1920’s or 30’s. The shoe store was where Lash Studio is today.
In the 1960’s Paige’s Restaurant became The Whistle Stop Restaurant and Nazif’s Shoe Store became a fabric store. Sometime in the 1980’s the entire first floor became the Happy Dragon Restaurant and Bar. After the restaurant moved across the street, they purchased the building and renovated the commercial space as well as the apartments upstairs.
