Lincoln’s Store and Post Office

Southville’s old depot has had a long and storied history, first as a train station, then as a store, and currently as a residence on the corner of Parkerville and Southville Roads. Rather than tell you the history myself, I thought I would let you read this charming account from an undated newspaper article from sometime in the late 40’s, judging by the clothes worn in the pictures. The simple serenity that once was Lincoln Square seems almost impossible to imagine today. To step back to another time, simply click the images below to enlarge and enjoy!

  1. This is great Michael–we should post a picture of the house now, can we do that? It would be great to bring awareness to the community. Another treasure found and shared.

  2. Great! Great! Great!

    I’d love to do a local TV program n some of these sites–drawing attention both to the sites and to the SHS.
