Center of the World – 1933

1933 Article discussing “The Center of the World”

Harbert resident Shawn Lynch recently donated a June 29, 1933 copy of The Community Enterprise to Friends of New Troy. The old newspaper was crumbling, but volunteer Ben Stolarik quickly scanned portions of it for preservation. Page one of the newspaper, which appears below, features an article about the Center of the World General Store and its owner, Hosea B. Tirrell. The article includes photos and even the lyrics of a song that Tirrell wrote about his store. Click the image to see detail.
