You won’t believe what used to be in this building!

In Center City Charlotte at the corner of North Tryon and Seventh Streets is a building that currently houses the Fox and Hound Restaurant.  Built in 1925 the current owners have tried to maintain that “vintage” feeling while keeping the inside updated for their customers.

This is what the building looked like in the 1930’s when it had a Fisk Tire Shop with a garage on the side and Walker’s Drug Store:

This is a great example of what a business owner can do to keep a older building in use and not let it fall into neglect or ruin.  Over the years while the building has been altered and expanded  the building has retained most of its character.  I hope that you will visit the Fox and Hound and take a look inside a building that was not always a restaurant but always a retail establishment.
