1. Ewell Brown General Store (Wikipedia). In 1892 it was a drug store and general merchandise store operated by a Dr. E. Taylor. Ewell Brown was an employee: a pill roller and assistant operator. Ewell Brown bought the store in 1899 and along with his brother, Bob, operated it was a general merchandise store. Bob took over the store in 1948 and it closed in 1953 or 1954, due to the realignment of US 41, which caused a decline in trade.
