Still on Church Street.
This house, on the south side at 310 Church street, was the home of G. Douglas and Violet Burnie. These would have been Doug Burnie's parents, our favorite hardware man.
From information found in various articles, it would appear Douglas Burnie was possibly a salesman that had come to town and found that the hardware store was what he was interested in. As it turned out, Ernest Krause, then the owner of this store, was willing to sell it and so Mr. Burnie was in the right place at the right time.
