Griswold B. Carrier built this small store and owned it for just three years before selling it to grocer William Shields who lived in the house immediately to the left. The two buildings were connected by a passageway which has been closed. During it's construction, the newspaper described the second-floor apartment and commented, "connecting with the parlor is a porch with a good railing, commanding a view of Main Street." For many years after 1914 the store was owned by grocer Homer Means. Restored in 1987 by Diana Achille, DDS.
