Significance: Spring Garden was typical of the small interior cotton market towns scattered through the black belt south. During the town's heyday, the retail district comprised a grocery store, a cotton gin, saw mill, and livery stable. The only surviving building, the c. 1878 W.L. Westbrook Grocery Store, with its 14-in masonry walls, corbeled cornices, and arched second story windows, is typical of late nineteenth century commercial buildings. The building's solid bricks were produced and fired in the vicinity.
