Description: Owned and operated by Edith Clarkson from 1901 until she died, November 30, 1919. Warren Clarkson, Edith's grandfather, built the first grocery store in 1835 on what was to become Clarkson Road. Sometime in the 1860s his sons, William and Henry, took over the store and William opened the first post office in 1875. William was succeeded at the store by his son, Warren Frank, in 1894, and in 1901 Warren turned over the store to his sister, Edith. Cora Clarkson, Edith's sister, is in the foreground of the photograph. From the Harold Hare Collection.
