The 1300 block of Decatur Street. This row of store buildings across the street from the United States Mint property was built during the 1830s and early 1840s. Tax assessment records from the year 1900 show that a jewelry store, two fruit stores, and a clothing store were operating in the block. A crockery store near the corner of Decatur and Esplanade had just moved to a new location. The buildings remain standing today.
