1. Patterson Store Marker
Inscription. Established in 1904 the Fred G. Patterson Store was famous as a general mercantile, specializing in shoes and cotton pick sacks. A shoe at the entrance indicated the store was open for business. In 1993 the family donated the buildings for use as a historical center. The original fixtures are part of the museum and a shoe is still used to indicate the museum is open.
