Wilmouth's Grocery Store

Proudly displayed in the upper right corner of this Depression-era photo of Wilmouth's Grocery Store is an NRA or National Recovery Act sign. The NRA was Roosevelt's New Deal retail program, and, like merchants throughout the country, this business, then one of only a few shops along Brown Street and Main, showed support for it by pledging to provide jobs and offer fair prices.
