Holeproof Hosiery

Chock full of hundreds of interesting artifacts from the years gone by, this 1879 building was owned by Harvey Boone . In July of 1884, this building was almost swallowed by a fire that gobbled up the buildings from Boone's store to Kingsley's stables - almost the entire block of Green Street.. Of the many items still shelved herein, are several original Edison light bulbs that are and have been continuously burning for several years. Displayed in one window, you can see familiar name brands from today, such as 'Kellogg's Tasteless Castor Oil', 'St. Joseph's Aspirin', 'Trojan condoms' and 'Colgate medicated powder'.
