This building has a history

Built in 1890, 623 North 25th Street is “one of the largest commercial buildings” in the historic districts in Church Hill. The building appears to have begun life as a boarding house, and has since progressed through a number of commercial uses on the lower level. The upstairs has been a separate address since at least the mid-1930s.
