Longnecker, Doctor, Office Building (Worthington, Ohio)

Looking at the historic building on the SW Corner of High and New England from the abandoned Sohio Station, I remembered Dr. Longnecker's dental office on the was on the second floow back in the 1930's Juanita Stoddard ran a beauty shop on the first floor. In the 1950,s Worthington Realty was on the street level. We bought a house from their agent, Allen Shaw, in1954.

The Worthington Post Office was on the New England side. Mrs Griffith, Postmisstress, saved blocks of stamps with the plate number for me during my grade school years when I was collecting.
