This is the old Meadowbrook Store, which was outside Butterfield. Take U Highway off of Highway 37. Turn left on Farm Road 1112, and go to the corner of 1112 and 2015. I talked to Verlon Haworth, who's father owned the store. The family lived in a few rooms inside the building. It was on a corner, at the bottom of a bluff. In order to keep water from congregating there, they had dug a directional ditch that ran UNDER the back of the store, where a lot of the feed was kept. The back of the store was actually on stilts. The cellar out back was built right into the face of that bluff. The ice truck would come every day and blocks of ice were unloaded into that cellar to keep things cool. Submitted by Jay Trace, 2016
