The McGuire Building, located at 1 Market Square in Roanoke, Virginia, was built in 1914 and housed W. E. McGuire’s Farmers’ Supply Co. that sold buggies, wagons, fertilizer, seed, and other farm-related equipment and supplies. Almost from the beginning the McGuire Building housed small restaurants and farmers’ booths on the first floor. One such place became a Roanoke staple, the Roanoke Weiner Stand, then called the Roanoke Weinnie Stand, started there in 1916. Initially renovated in 1983 to house Center in the Square and its cultural organizations, the 81,000 sq ft building was again renovated in 2013.
