  oldest store I've seen!!
by triplehelix

This general store is owned and opperated by the Ishigo family. Years and years ago, it was customary for business owners to name their shops or stores after their family names. It was also expected that the children would continue to opperate the business long after the owners died. This store is still here today after several generations of ownership. It's probably one of the oldest stores still in opperation in the state.
