It's unlikely you can find a way to cross reference the address with all the different forms of business registrations there might be, so my suggestion would be to ask someone with an long term established business in that vicinity.
If the property is not easily accessible for you physically, any number of search engines will allow you to pull up reverse address search and most will allow you to find the phone numbers of the immediate neighbors.
Make a few calls. Probably find a few sources even if you don't anyone with the exact information. Good luck.

Check with local municipality. Usually the city or county will have records regarding prior uses. If that does not work, check with the old folks down at the local coffee shop. They probably could tell you the history of the property!
