    Harriette Ming House


    This house was owned by Harriette Ming from about 1923 to 1943. The story here is really about Harriette’s husband, Lewis, but he had died by the time she moved here in the early 20s. 


    Diagonally across the intersection from Q’s Cocktail Lounge on the corner was “AJ’s” – a popular soul-food restaurant that attracted a large clientele from all over town for many years. The restaurant closed its doors not long after its proprietor Arthur Joe (“Trigger”) Hutchinson died in 2013.
