Former Cash Hardware/ThursdayDoors

Welcome this week to a fairly simple Thursday Doors entry from Mid-Missouri–specifically Sedalia, Missouri.

A back view on Main Street.

The picture above was taken as we took a detour one day. It’s been so long ago that I can’t tell you why. Maybe a semi had the road blocked in front of this building? Obviously this is from the archives since my memory fails me. But it caught my eye and so I took a couple pics.

I can’t add a ton of info about this building but I’ll give you what I know. From my hubby’s days of working here when it was a hardware store, he’s told me that upstairs had apartments, and in the basement, there were tunnels that went under the street. He had the pleasure of lugging 25 gallon crocks (see below) to the first floor when they went out of business.

My last memory of going through the doors as a hardware store was when I did the wedding registry thing back in ’87. Just a couple days ago ya know?!
