About the Restaurant

History of the Building
The staff of 440 welcomes you to historic downtown Bowling Green. We are proud to add another chapter to a story rich in Southern heritage, and look forward to serving you, our valued patrons and friends, in the years to come.440 East Main Street was built for John Getty in 1871, and was constructed of local limestone. The building was sold and utilized as a dry goods and shoe store. 1930 the third floor was constructed into a skating rink, still intact, which also served as a dance hall for the elite of BG and a practice room for the Southern Norman School’s basketball team. The first level served as headquarters for local USO during World War II, then later housed Bowling Green Business University. The Original Parakeet Café was located here in the 1940’s, and until 1992, was also home to the local Western Auto Parts Store.
