Clover Farm Store

Thanks to Cheryll Black Obendorf for the shot above.  She tells us it's the C. N. Black & Sons Clover Farm Store in Glencoe, c. 1940. “My grandfather, Charles Newton Black, and his sons, Charles Cecil (my dad) and Marvin Lee, were the proprietors. They also ran a huckster route throughout Gallatin County.”

“The citizens of Glencoe and vicinity are highly elated over the success of their efforts to obtain a pike from this place through Owen county, intersecting the Owenton and Sparta Pike.  Emboldened by their success in this undertaking, they have organized a meeting for taking steps to procure a pike from here to Sugar Creek.  If this later scheme proves as successful as the former, then indeed, the citizens of Glencoe may expect better times.  There would then be no idle clerks lying around on the counters, sighing for customers, for they would be as busy as the barkeepers now are.”From the Daily Commonwealth, February 4, 1879
