Loane's store and Opera House on East side of Main Street. The Loane's sign on the front of the store announced that they sold hardware and 'sportmens' supplies.

Advertised brand name products were Simond's Saws ("Simonds are Best"), Atlantic Ranges ("Atlantic Ranges Always Please"), and Syracuse Chilled Plows ("Syracuse Plows are Best"). Syracuse Plows of Syracuse, New York, later became part of the John Deere Company.
