Kneisel and Anderson Store, 1892
Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic Landmark District
Te single-bay building to the west was built somewhat later, and it also was initially a grocery store. Around 1912, Kneisel and Anderson purchased it and established their hardware business there, where it continues to this day.
The Kneisel and Anderson Store is the oldest, continuously operated business in Georgetown. Today, customers are served from behind the original counter.
Erected 2007 by Town of Georgetown and Historic Georgetown, Inc.
