New coffee shop named for Fletcher Place founder

October 20, 2009

Local investors have opened a new coffee shop in Fletcher Place they plan to turn into a not-for-profit to raise money for local charities. The shop at 615 Virginia Ave. is called Calvin Fletcher's Coffee Company in honor of the neighborhood's namesake. Fletcher, one of the city's first lawyers and founder of what would become American Fletcher National Bank, owned much of the land in the area in the 1820s. Coffee shop owner Doug Litsey said he has applied for 501(c)3 status and already is operating the business, which opened Oct. 17, as a charity. The shop features organic, fair-trade coffee and free wifi. Tips this month are going to Second Helpings.
