Although the building has been vacant for years, it has lived many lives over the decades on Morris Avenue. According to BhamWiki, the building housed the Morris House Club & Restaurant in the 1970s and 1980s. However, the 1990s saw Morris Avenue change from a place of entertainment to offices and lofts.
