The Ritchie House and General Store
The Ritchie house was built by Henry Cox and Son, Corby. They lived there for a time before selling it to Dana Nutter and his mother, Bertha. The Nutters spent several years there and moved elsewhere. They rented the house to Paris and Leatha Herold. The last owners of the house were Kenneth and Charlotte (Morrison) Ritchie. The General Store was located in the intersection of town, it was owned and operated by Kenneth and Charlotte Ritchie. The store was built by Alephus and his father, Finley Morrison. Kenneth bought the building from them and the store opened in 1946. Both the house and store were burned by the C.B.C. Volunteer Fire Dept. to make way for a Senior Citizens complex and new Rite-Aid, the Complex was named after Mr. Kenneth Ritchie.
