How wonderful to spark questions about what was where and when… After yesterday’s post some folks asked about the bank that was in the Hauck General Store building.
That was in 1944. By 1955 the Fairview Community Council was able to bring a branch of this bank to Fairview and located it in the Hauck General Store.
After both the Girard branch and this Fairview branch merged with Security Peoples Bank a new building was erected across the street.
From 1920 to 1925 Harvey Walter and Carl Stork ran an auto repair shop in a building they called the “tin garage.”
The bank was built on that site later. Can anyone identify these folks? (There’s even a dog sound asleep.) And wouldn’t the “American Pickers” like to get their hands on that motorcycle?
