Inscription.  In 1838, merchants Sharp & Loughmiller charged $30 for twenty-four pairs of shoes purchased here for “poor and destitute Indians” passing through Winchester on the Trail of Tears. In 1863, the Union army took over the upstairs office of newspaper publisher W. J. Slatter. Sprague, Handly & Cooper became Winchester's first large department store here in 1898. The Sprague building burned in 1934, and the new building was occupied by Kuhn's until 1979.
