This was a general store and did good business being the only store between Irwinville and Sycamore. It was the de facto command post for the Bostick case. The Bosticks lived in a shanty house just west of the store past the branch on the north side of the road. There was a family spat and Mrs. Bostick left. Mr. Bostick then barricaded himself in the house with a young son whom he refused to release. Shots were fired into the house but neither Bostick or his son were injured. Concerned neighbors gained entry by removing a door and then rescued the child. The sheriff (unsure of the name) was shot and injured during the melee but not killed. Bostick was eventually hunted down and killed.
