This site was part of a historic sit-in that spurred the case Bouie v. City of Columbia. On March 14, 1960, two African American students from Allen University conducted a sit-in demonstration by sitting down at a booth at the lunch counter in an Eckerd’s drug store. This building was built between 1892-1895, originally the Canal Dime Savings Bank and then an Eckerd’s Drug Store (1936). It is a three-story, Romanesque Revival style brick building with a granite façade and red barrel tile roof
