Chuck Goins wrote in 2011: My grand-parents, E.J. & Ora Goins ran a fish market & store in this building for years. He passed in 1968, but she continued to operate the store until the late 80’s. It was well-known for the best hamburgers (cooked to order) by summer field workers and locals. He also learned that it was originally built as the town’s ice house. In October 2014 he noted: …the building no longer stands, and is in (the) process of being demolished. I also discovered that the blocks used for this building (as well as those used in the Pickett House on North Pickett Street) were supposedly cast right there in Ty Ty from molds purchased and built for that purpose.
