|The Oldest Hardware Store West of the Mississippi |
Celebrating 160 years!!!In June 1852, Mr. Franklin Stevens was deeded this property. Mr Stevens and Franklin S. Randall erected a stone building on this site in 1854. Mr Franklin, who acquired the business in December 1855, sold in 1856 to I. H. Nash. Business was started as a Tinsmith Shop and Hardware.
|160 + year old floors|
|Just one of the aisle crammed with stuff - nuts and bolts to rifles.|
|Here it is! A food mill that I've been wanting forever. No more peeling, chopping and straining for me. Now I can convert those apples I bought into applesauce in half the time.|
|That's not an apple but it makes for a better visual so you can get the idea. Wait 'til you see this baby in action.|
Until next time,
