Right across from the newly- redone Andress Artist and Entrepreneur Center is the former home of the Yellow Cab Taxi Company. Over the years, the building at 718 Crockett Street has been a number of businesses, including a Lincoln Mercury dealership and Nall’s Glass. Things changed for the building with the most recent owners, Paula and Wayne Anderson. The Andersons reinvisioned the former commercial building into a multi-purpose space that includes a private residence on the second floor.
