In the mid 1800's the John Burk Family (sons: John, Oliver and Jeremiah) ran a dry goods business. This photo is believed to be of this building. The business was in two different locations: originally the mercantile was located at the corner of Pike and Green, but, was later located at the corner of Walnut and Market. Vital statistic records show that John Burk died in 1866 at the age of 73 years. Photographs like this help determine locations of numerous buildings (notice the gentleman in the background at another business - which is possibly the Willis Grocery Store) in our county.
