Description

Pre-restoration view of the Margaret Hunter Shop when operated as an automotive service station known as Kinnamon's Store. During the nineteenth-century, the colonial gable end store transformed into a two story structure when a second floor enlargement was built. Additional renovations converted it into a automotive service station in the 1920s. Careful archaeological and architectural investigations led to the shop's restoration in 1930 and further modifications brought it back to its full eighteenth-century appearance in 1951.
