Description

The Strong business district was known as "the village."

From left, Byron & Fogg Produce Exchange provided a market for local farmers' goods. Next the J. D. Vaughan building housed the G.A.R. Post 134 upstairs, and two merchants, C. B. Richardson and E. H. Vaughan, on the ground floor. Then the building owned by J. H. Bell had his residence upstairs and a hardware store downstairs. In the next building H. J. Bates operated a grocery store.
