Brown's Department Store. John A. Brown's Department Store came to occupy the better part of one downtown block, the original main entry being on Main between Robinson and Harvey, shown below. Over time, Brown's expanded to include most of the space on the south side of Park Avenue, excepting only that occupied by the Cravens (Perrine) Building, as shown by the cropped and annotated image from the Sanborn Map Company files, below. The full history of Brown's spans the time between 1901 to 1984. For much more, see this blog article.
