|Dudley Rouse started The Corner Store, on the corner diagonally from the old courthouse, after the Civil war. It changed hands in the 1890's and Riddell & Crisler ran it from then until 1921, when it was bought by Dudley Rouse Blythe. That's also the the year the original frame building burned, and was replaced by the one shown here. The Smith family acquired the business c. 1970. The building was demolished in 2002. That's Lucille Rice Smith in the image on the left, in a picture from 1939. More on Blythe's Store, here.|
