Gone and almost forgotten. Here is a picture of a structure I have had a difficult time tracking down where it was once located. I was originally told that the building was known as the “Rocco Building” located on Second Street near Division Avenue. However, the background doesn’t really match that description. The building on the left in the background is too far away to be the Workingman’s Social Club as this building sat on the corner of a tree-lined street as you can see on the left. Also it looks like the left of the building is a field of some sort. The picture was taken a couple of days before being torn down.
There have been a number of Rocco’s in Ellwood City and two or three Rocco’s corner grocery stores; this could be one I don’t doubt but I do not know where.
The Rocco Building was razed in the summer of 1974. If you remember this store, please share your memories below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
