Burke Block, 267 Commercial Street SE, (NR)

This building was originally a fruit and produce house. The Illahee Club, which met upstairs, was organized in 1895 as a recreational club growing out of the first Chamber of Commerce; members were Salem business and professional man. In 1927 the Salem Laundry Company occupied part of the building; in the 1930s Hain's Top and Body Shop was in business here. The Table Supply, a grocery store, and A. R. McDonald, a meat market, were in business at the street level with apartments above.
