Site of the Seaboard Café
When built in 1904, this two-story masonry structure served as an alcohol dispensary for Richland County. After the collapse of the state-sponsored system, a wholesale paper supplier occupied the site. Later generations of Columbians and visitors to the capital city associated this address with the Seaboard Café, a former Vista landmark run by the Joseph family.
