Those who have been reading my columns over the past 25 years will recall the numerous times I referred to a visit to the candy counter at McEwan's "Corner Store," on the corner of Sylvan and Cedar Lane in Hamilton. The Plaag family had a very large part of the development of the Atkins-Cedar Lane-Sylvan Avenue area back in the early years of Hamilton. The original old farm house occupied by Hugo Plaag still exists directly behind the "Quik-Chek" store on Cedar Lane and Olden Avenues. Many of the older homes on Atkins Avenue were built by a gentleman whom I believe was Henry Plaag, a building contractor who built many Trenton-Hamilton area homes back in the 1920's.
