1913: FRED McCABE BECOMES A PARTNER IN THE HAMILTON SQUARE GENERAL STORE
Among those buildings that I believe should be on the list of the National Historic Register is the old "General Store" of Hooper and Chamberlin, later to include McCabe. I drew the pen and ink rendering way back in 1983 or so, when Mr. Chamberlin let me borrow the original photo for the weekend. I understand that the historic old building supplied the village residents with all their needs. It was also a supply house for local farmers who needed replacement parts and other farm-related supplies. The second story of the building supposedly once housed a harness making factory.

I live on mercer street from 1949 to 1979. As a kid this store was a center point for kids and candy. The also use to deliver and I still can remember their van coming down our driveway. They were great people and found to talk to.
