Inscription.  The original site of Nu-Way Western Wear (circa 1928) was a building used as a saddle, tack and harness shop.

The small shop also included a boot and shoe repair space. The owners expanded the building and opened a full-service shoe store that offered boot and shoe repair. The expansion also provided living quarters and the shop had a resident boot maker on hand.

The building was later expanded to include a complete western store with saddlery, tack, boots, shoes, hats and accessories.
