This corner has remained pretty much unchanged for a good number of years. The farther south one goes on College, the more impact a game-changing project like a streetcar or even a rapid bus line could have.
One of the most interesting and older buildings in the neighborhood with its limestone facade and exterior cellar entrance.Â It has been the home of Big Al’s Superstore for a number of years.
Home of Double 8 Foods, this corner building has been the location of a small grocery store since the 1930’s.Â I took this photo of the building a few years ago for an article I wrote on the business.
This was a small gas station that has been demolished.Â Mary Owens from the MKNA would like to see a neighborhood park here, which makes sense, as Meridian Kessler has no parks within its borders.Â I would also support a mixed-use building, of course.
I neglected to take aÂ photograph of the Robinson AME church, so I will link to a photo on the church’s webpage.
