This building features a recessed storefront, large glass display windows and transom. A large awning now covers the upper facade. However, evedence is still visable of a large recessed panel in the facade. When this was a vacenty lot, it was used by neighboring Matthews Hardware to store fence wire. The lot soon had a nice building on it which housed the first ABC store in Galax. However, the ABC store was later voted out by the citizens of the town. Following the ABC store, the building became the second locationin Galax for the Merchants and Farmers Bank. The old bank depository can still be seen in the right frount of the building. When the bank moved to the corner of Center & Main ST, Galax Office Supply (or Blue Ridge Office Supply) moved to this building.
