Question Mark Sign On Hobson's Old Building, Corner Of Henry & Main (Honor, MI)

At least, I think that's a question mark.

    Thanks for adding to group. Better known as "Hobson's old building" taken over and abandoned by strangers. Nice shot...!

    Thanks J! I've revised the title and added a tag. Was it a diner in years past?

    Well it was a number of things. In the 60's/70's they sold TV's...really and in the 50's it was Hobson's Grocery Store. (mom is a wealth of information) At the same time the Grocery Store was operating the upstairs was used as a Lodge Hall for meetings, not drinking they did that at the Honor Bar, in the 80's it was made into a few apartments. Then some people took it over in the 90's, painted the ? mark and all the pretty colors and tried selling books, insence, jewelry...that didn't last long. Now it's a fire trap. Honor history lesson by J. with the help of Mom since the 50's was a tad bit before my time. Pretty cool stuff. Love the pic too.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called MPA's "Capture Main Street" Project, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.
    Looking for images of all Main streets in MI. We'd love some of Honor, MI and others like, Alabaster, Paradise, Hell and others.
