Site of Former Community Store
A tangible link to an early business found nestled within the neighborhood, rather than along its borders, still stands at the intersection of South Saluda and Kiawah avenues. The building's form remains intact, though the structure's façade has been modified from its original appearance. Interestingly, in its earliest years, this former store's name, Wales Garden Grocery, suggested a stronger association with Hollywood-Rose Hill's neighbor to the north. The community grocery once featured a prominent sign and awning. While no longer serving its initial purpose, the building nonetheless remains architecturally distinctive among the surrounding houses.
