Berger's Store

Berger's Store, on the Toshes Road, was built in 1829 by Samuel Berger, Bryan and Samuel Nowlin. Berger’s Store building had a front room 18 by 20 feet. Back of this was a “counting room.” Early voting was at the courthouse, but about the time in 1829 when this store began operation, voting was by districts. Berger’s Store became one of the voting places. There was a larger “warming room” in back with a bid fireplace. A stairway led from this room to a room above where the clerk had sleeping quarters. There was a post office in the store beginning in 1841.
