In 1878, James Martin (1815-1879) bought the store from the other partners and became sole owner until his death early the next year. Martin's son J.C. Martin (1861-1949) and his grandsons ran this general store for 119 years. The grandsons, J.Y. Martin (1906-1969) and J.H. Martin (1907-2000) continued to operate the store until it closed in 1997. It sold groceries, dry goods, automotive, and farm supplies, was a polling place, housed a doctor's office and was the site of many community gatherings. The Masons, the Grange, and the Woodmen of the World held meetings on the second floor for many years.
