It was a beautiful, sunny, Sunday afternoon as we drove down a country highway in Wyoming and came across a little general store. Aladdin Telephone Number List General Store was built in the 1890s as a saloon and mine commissary and became a general store in 1915. The town of Aladdin, population of only 15, can be found between the Black Hills and Telephone Number List Devils Tower on Highway 34, 17 miles west of Telephone Number List Belle Fourche, South Dakota. Today, this store is the best-preserved of Wyoming's five remaining 19th-century mercantiles left in the state.
It has continued to serve the small community as a post office, bar, barber shop, telephone office, gas station, and also boosts many Telephone Number List museum pieces and has a small antique stop. Interesting to note, this store served as a Telephone Number List railway depot and freight station for the Wyoming and Missouri Valley Railroad, an 18-mile stretch that hauled coal and mining supplies. This 100+ year old building is listed on the Telephone Number List National Register of Historic Places and remains the staple place for the small community.
As I roamed around the timeworn, little store, I wondered how the store owners got along way back when, advertising and selling their Telephone Number List goods without having the privileges of the internet? Being a child of the late 20th century, it is difficult to Telephone Number List conceive of how business was conducted in the late 1800s, as most people today can easily type a few strokes on their blackberry or laptop with a multitude of Telephone Number List purchase choices at their disposal in record time.
