Notes
Survey number HABS GA-2179
Building/structure dates: 1918 initial construction
Significance: Bits & Pieces Antiques at 3816 East Main Street is one of a group of five buildings in College Park which contains three of the city's oldest commercial structures. This building shares common walls with two of those older structures, and is something of a curiosity. Otherwise, it has little or no significance. The rear wall appears to be original brick; the two side walls are the exterior walls of the adjoining buildings, unfinished on the inside. The facade appears to be of a later vintage than the rear wall, and may have been built in the 1940s when the building shows a period of vacancy. The first known tenant was a real estate broker who occupied the building from 1918 (probably earlier) until the mid 1930s. The first known tenant after the period of vacancy was a furniture repair shop, which used the building in the 1950s then moved around the corner on John Wesley to a new structure there. Attached as it is to the two buildings next to it, this is not even a complete building. What is there does not appear on the 1911 Sanborn map but does appear on the 1928 USGS topographic map for the Atlanta area.
