Pacolet Stores and Commercial Establishments in the  1940's and 50's

The stores and other businesses in Pacolet have been constantly changing over the years. This part of the website is devoted to the business places that were in operation in Pacolet in the 1940's and 1950's. No attempt is being made to include the names or location of contemporary places. It is very likely that places have been left out or called by the wrong name. We welcome corrections and additions. The businesses located at Pacolet Mills, such as those in the Hall, are described elsewhere. For ease of description, the stores have been divided into the following areas. In some cases, there is additional information available about that business. In those cases, follow the link to read more. A map for each area is also included to more precisely show the business location.
