Former Hegy's? Ridgewood?

Former Hegy's? Ridgewood?



Help me out here … I found this ad for Hegy’s in a 1927 issue of The Springfield Republican. It looks much like the image at the top, same location pretty much. Is this the former Ridgewood Mills (used to go there a lot with my mom to look at & buy fabric) — and is this now the location of the Waterfront Tavern??
