Site of the Burr Hawley &
Burritt General Store
At this site farmers assembled horse teams & wagons to bring milk to the milk station & to buy feed, hay and grain; residents purchased sewing supplies, groceries & lumber. Tradition has it that Mark Twain of Redding, visited here to listen to local tales around the potbelly stove. The only motor-driven grain mill in town was located in the back of the store.
