This is Crook Bros. General Merchandise circa 1910. This building was erected before the Civil War by a different family.

Middlefork circa 1916. The store to the immediate left of the buggy is Crook Bros. General Merchandise. The buggy is sitting on what is now Hwy 22 A. The road between the Crook Store and the next building down is the Middlefork-Mifflin Road. The next store down is Arnold's Store. It was a two story building . . . a store and office for Dr. Arnold.
