Medical/dental offices

Office condos

Residential condos



Antique mall

A destination restaurant like Glendale’s Whistle Stop or Patti's 1880s Settlement in Grand Rivers/Land Between the Lakes.

Craft brewery with B&B (for instance, like the Talbott Tavern in Bardstown).

Also could be an incredible residence (or duplex or triplex with each having an entire floor!).
