I took some pictures of the interior of 7 1/2 N. State St. in Uptown Westerville. This building is for sale and I don't believe that it was used for anything for quite some time. I have the feeling that it was used as an Art studio in the 1970's but not in a formal way. I called the local Historian and was given the following information:
Hi Leslie – your question was referred to me. I am going to give you a list of what the 1976 business directory states was in that property. It doesn’t distinguish between floors.
