This building was the home of Wade Furniture Store in 1946.  It is located on the North side of the town square.  During that time period, there was an alley between that building and the Dr. C. H. Hill Clinic building.  A shed was constructed in this alley and it was used to house one of the Town's fire carts.  In the 1950's a building was built between the two buildings.  The Wade Furniture building later became the Nickels Shop during the 1960's.  It still stands today on Troy Square's North side.

If you look close at the brick on the front of the church, you can still see where the front part of the church had to be replaced after the storm.
