Abernathy Hardware Building Photos
The building itself was built in early 1909 on the southwest side of the Lawrenceville Square, and its first occupant was the Farmer's State Bank. Next to the bank in 1909 was the Lawrenceville Bargain Store- a 5 and 10 cent store- and in the rear, where the National Supply Co. had its store in 1959 was the Fancher Drug Co. If some one wants to research the fire? that caused the building to be taken down, I will be happy to print it here.
