David S. Plumly came to Lincoln from Pennsylvania in 1836. On the corner lot on the Military Rd. (Main St.) he built a general store. This store burned in 1856 and he at once erected the three-storied building which became known as the Plumly Block. His general store occupied the corner section and Harrison Piper had a jewelry store on the other side for over thirty years. Charles operated the store after the death of his father. He was Postmaster from Oct. 1, 1897 to Sept. 1913 and the post office was located in this location for a number of years. The store was later sold to George Mitton who operated it as The Green Front in the late 1920s. It then became known as the Mitton Block.
