There is plenty of parking in a large lot behind the building. Scooters Skin Art is located near the back of the building and the Imperial Symphony Orchestra is located upstairs. In the recent past, the location was the Polk County Republic HQ before the last election. Before that it was Paula Dockery’s Campaign HQ. Great roomy location with plenty of parking.”
