Description

Originating in 1890, Hyman’s Wholesale Co. was established by W.M. Karesh, a Jewish immigrant. The company has been passed down from generation to generation and is now known as Hyman’s Seafood and Aaron’s Deli. In the year of 1986, the Omni hotel was built in close quarters to this building and the city ordered the company to give up the back 280 feet of the property in order to put a parking garage in its place.
