Huling Lundy & Sons
Now called Hometown Hardware, this hardware store was originally called
Wimer-Huling Hardware but was changed to Huling-Lundy & Sons in the spring of 1892.
This building has a wood frame construction and still retains the
original hardwood floors and hand pressed tin ceiling. In 1896, it became
the home of Myrtle Point's first telephone office. In addition to the hardware goods sold there
today, the business has also carried guns, ammunition, as well as musical instruments and art supplies.
A fine stock of musical instruments and artists material just received at Huling & Lundy's.
Just the thing you want for a Christmas present. Call and see our new stock.
