Our picture this month takes us back to the “village” of East Union where David Eshleman’s General Store was located along the Lincoln Highway (seen here before it was paved with brick). We have an unidentified family on the store’s front steps (after it had been remolded and enlarged) along with a young lad riding bareback.  A sign advertising Adams Express Company can be seen on the side of porch which was a company that was in the freight moving as well as the financial business which included money orders. East Union at one time was a stop on the C.A.&C. Railroad and had a hotel, post office, black smith, wagon repair shop and a sawmill.   Eshleman’s store is now just a fond memory like the Harvest Market, but fortunately the East Union Bulk store has recently expanded to better serve our area.
