According to a recent "The Virginian-Pilot" newspaper article (by Victoria Bourne, Oct. 6, 2017): "...the building dates back to the early 1900s. The Elliott Motor Co., owned by Milton T. Elliott, moved into the space in 1914 and sold and serviced Chalmerses and Fords, according to newspaper archives."Most recently, the space was home to a check-cashing business. And in the fall of 2017 the Brick & Mortar Brewing Company opened in this space.
