History of the Building

The Red Letter Merchant, located at 7 West Washington Street, is a curated vintage store with a red exterior and captivating display windows, which makes it a hard-to-miss staple in the downtown historic district. The building’s history dates back to 1895, as the Murray Warehouse Block Building. During this time, there was a hand printed stationary business, as well as a general store in the main part of the building and a cigar shop on the second floor. By 1900, the building housed a bookstore, an insurance office, and an undertaker. From 1911-1927, the building housed the Murray Manufacturing Company, followed by Murray Printing Company in 1949. During the 60s, the building housed Hendrix Pool Hall. In 1972, Newnan Baking and a coffee shop were here. In the 1990s, Mansour Travel Associates was in this building. Today, the Red Letter Merchant continues the building’s tradition of diverse occupancy.
