 Grover Cronin

Originally built as the Hub Tea Co. in 1893, and remodeled in 1928, it became a landmark. It was the home, until 1989 of the Crover Cronin Departmant Store in the center of town. It's well known to anyone in town and is almost as familiar as the town hall. There are plans to restore the building. It is a fine example of Art Deco style architecture of the early 20's
