In 1896, Harry Bennett Mitchell (1875-1945) assumed the reins of his late father's hardware business. At age 21 he began to build an enterprise that would span more than four decades and make him one of Emlenton's most prosperous merchants. In addition to hardware and farming equipment, "H.B." became involved in oil well supplies and the Wick Wire Co., a national manufacturer of heavy wire cable used in oil well production. In 1902, Harry Graham, a future brother-in-law, entered the hardware business and later became a partner. Mitchell's business interests included finance (he served as president or vice-president of several area banks) and highway construction supplies.
