Downtown Davidson insurance agency J.J. Wade & Associates is moving into its new home this weekend, in the newly constructed Mooney’s Corner building on South Main Street, next to Town Hall. The $2.7 million, 4-story building at 212 S. Main St. is right next door Wade’s former office in the historic building at 208 S. Main.
Wade will occupy most of the building, including the ground floor. Meanwhile, the owner of the historic building next door is now looking for tenants.
