Richard Poland bought the store in 1901. His son George Henry Poland worked in the store his whole life. When he came back from WWII, he took over from his Dad and brother-in-law Albert Collins. That's when Albert took the hardware, feed, seed, and gas pumps up what is now Collins street and started Collins Hardware.
