The Brownlee Store & Warehouse

Brownlee’s Store was established by M. F. Brownlee, Sr., in 1933 on the northwest corner of Main & Second Streets. This building burned in the spring of 1945. Another store was then built north of this location in the fall of the same year. M. F. Brownlee, Jr. owned the property in 1956. Dallas Brownlee owned and operated it for many years thereafter. . . . (M. Brownlee, email 2 Aug 2001) Located in Block H, Town of Dell Plat

I snapped this photo sometime in the 1980s. . .This is the 1945 building. 

The warehouse was located on the east side of Main Street, 
across from the store. It was razed in 2009.
