Bailey Building

at 400 South Union Street, built in 1990 by Bubba Bailey, and for years the bastion of gambling mogul Milton McGregor. It is the only major, non-govt construction that contributed to the startling rebirth of what was a quiet rundown residential street, from which all the residents could walk to work. Bubba headed the Parker-Sledge Hardware stores that dominated Montgomery 40-odd years ago. Parker-Sledge and Bishop-Parker share roots.
