York & Overton (1890s)

Those familiar with the over-century-old buildings on the west side of South Indiana Street, just south of the Main Street intersection in downtown Mooresville, Indiana, may be interested in these late 19th century (and early and middle 20th century) photographs of the businesses that occupied the premises. We begin with York and Overton in the 1890s.

If your view of the embedded document below is partially obscured, please right-click the document and choose the "full screen" option.



See the "decorative" stars or flowers on the buildings in the photos? Those were anchors for steel cables running through the interior length and breadth of the structures, holding them straight and upright.
