The Past Meets the Present: The History of the Building on the Corner

You may remember the new Café 301, as the old Jack Horner Shoe Store.  The building on the corner of 3rd and Locust Street is ripe with history and memories from time past.   If you are a long time Columbian, you may have witnessed the transformation of this corner during some point of your life from a local business to the corner shoe store, to now, Café 301.  Who would have ever thought centuries later, Don and Becky Murphy, owners of Cimarron Investments LLC along with Chef Laurie Newman kindred love and connection for Columbia would unite them to restore the corner of 3rd and Locust Street once more.  Together, the Murphys and Chef Newman will help Columbians create new memories over good food, laughter, and their love for the community, history, and each person who walks through the doors of Café 301.
