Who remembers Scarlett Feed Store on First and Second avenues east?

I’m looking for a description of it (my memory is not always to be trusted) or, even better, old photos. I remember it from when I was a child, so that would have been in the mid-to-late 1960s, maybe even 1970s. I don’t remember when it closed but it had been there since the late 1800s.

  1. The only info I could find with a quick Internet search is:

    The address was 213-215 E. First St.

    It was also referred to as “Scarlett’s Seeds Feeds and Fertilizers.”

    Thomas Scarlett founded the business in 1898. He married a woman named Birdie Moore.

    They had a son, Raymond, who graduated from Central in 1926 and went into the family business. Raymond died in 2009 at the age of 101.

    The business closed in 1992.

  2. Thanks! Imagine being named Birdie Scarlett.

    I hope someone remembers this place. I’d love a description, or a photo. I might try Pat Maus. Thanks so much, Paul.
