53Weeks 005 of 371: S. N. Doner Store

Unlike the buildings so far this week, this one is not a designated heritage building. However, I happen to have in my archives images of the location that are quite old. It is interesting to see the changes that have occurred over the years.

The original building was built in the 1800s and burnt down about 1935. I remember it when it still operated as a general store and Post Office, Evelyn Milsted was the postmaster.

 I had a nice chat with the current owner. He showed my around inside, and let me take some pictures of the old post office safe.
