TitleAbout Town
NotesIn 1894 Matthew Quinn opened a grocery store at 549 Main Street, leaning more toward the sale of whiskey than of groceries. Both the liquor and the containers were manufactured by an outside source, being merely retailed by Quinn. In 1906 the store moved to 535 Main Street. The grocery closed in 1919. Many people have acquired antique demijohns bearing the Quinn imprint.
