On this corner in the 1750's was a large brick house owned by Captain Alexander Hamilton. John Paul, who owned and ran an ordinary during the Revolutionary War, sold the fifteen corner feet of the one-half acre lot to Thomas Latimer, Jr. It was bought by William Massenburg in 1817. By 1881, it was Elisha G. Darden's dry goods store with the Monitor, a local newspaper, occupying a large room upstairs. The Darden store was converted to The Merchants National Bank in 1903. The bulding was demolished in 1972.
