1. Fluvanna Mercantile Company Marker
Inscription. Pioneer store noted for its continuous career on original site. Founded in 1915 by D. A. Jones and John A. Stavely, with associated shareholders. Stock--freighted in by Roscoe, Snyder & Pacific Railroad--was typical "general merchandise": clothing, materials, groceries, hardware, millinery, patent medicines, seeds, shoes. Flour and stock salt were sold by carloads. During 1930s Depression, barter prevailed, as local people traded cream and eggs for "store-bought" supplies.

Early stock and display cases were given to a museum in 1958.
 
Erected 1970 by State Historical Survey Committee. (Marker Number 1931.)
