Yeamans Hardware (New And Old)


The oldest business in Akron, Colorado at the corner of Highway 34 and Main Street. Not only did the Yeamans family own the hardware store, they owned the town mortuary and built caskets in the basement of the store. I'm guessing that was only done in the building on the right.

(Go here and enter Yeamans Hardware Store in the search box to see a photo of the original 1885 building. Click on that photo to enlarge it.)
