The Buchoz block, 1851

The Buchoz block, 1851 image

The Buchoz block, built in 1851, stood behind you on Detroit street. It supplied the neighborhood's everyday needs with a grocery, bakery, and meat market. Carpenters, cobblers, tailors, cigar makers, barbers,and dressmakers ran businesses here — some lived upstairs. The name of one saloon, the "half way," reflected its location on the streetcar line between the railroad depot and downtown. The location of the tracks is still apparent in the brick paving on Detroit street.
