Rushville Times: 1836

Purchased by Nelson & Robertson In 1836

George Nelson father of W.W. Nelson and Lewis Robertson who formed a partnership in 1836 and opened a general store in Rushville and purchased the two lots and the building from Abram Smith in 1836.

“From that day to the present time the Nelson lot and the old store building which has been moved to the rear has remained in the Nelson family as owners.

“Years ago Mr. Nelson says old residents told him that the timbers in the building were hewed from trees cut within a mile of the public square. The old frame braced and pined together with wooden pins and with weather boarding and lath split from native timber is yet in a fair state of preservation.”
