Newberry’s Five and Dime Store (1953)

Sixth and Main Streets

-- John J. Newberry, of the S.H. Kresge Company, moved to Stroudsburg in 1911 and started his own discount store at 622 Main Street. A chain of Newberry Stores eventually opened along the East Coast. This building was constructed in 1953 in the Moderne architectural style and features large display windows and modest decorative elements. The Newberry Store closed here in 1997 after 86 years in business.
