Long Description:
Coleman Hardware

This site has hosted a hardware store for most of its history. In 1907 A. F. Grady sold his business here to D. J. Hill who renamed it the Coleman Hardware Company. In 1909 Hill sold furniture from the second floor. After 1910 it was known as Goodeve Hardware, and in 1911 H. G. Goodeve had contractor Edmund Disney construct a new two-storey building here. It went back to Coleman Hardware when Louis Dutil bought the business in 1918.

The building was destroyed by fire in 1948, and was replaced by the present building. This also operated as a hardware and furniture store until 1998 when the Modern Electric business owned by the Montalbetti family closed.
