Notes
Survey number HABS VA-1380
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N958).
Significance: The overall parti of the building can be described as having four distinct parts. These parts include the overhang, the main building, the office wing and the freezer room. All of these parts are connected to the main store building. Based on its similarities to other datable structures, the store was likely constructed in the 1930s or 1940s. The overhang is the most visible part of the store. It extends almost 30' from the main building and fronts on Garth Road. The overhang has beams that run around the underneath perimeter and these beams connect to four wood posts that support the front portion of the overhang. The wall of the main building supports the northernmost portion of the overhang. The gas tanks are located underneath this overhanging structure; two rows of cars can fit between the posts. The overhang has a simple pitched roof with no ornamentation.
