The heart and soul of downtown Solsberry, Indiana is Yoho's store.
It's been there forever.
The second story was the local Mason's meeting place. You used to be able to see the symbol under the peak of the roof.
Mr. Yoho died last year and the place has been bought by Cook to be restored and reopened this fall as a little grocery just like it's been for decades. [We hope they add an ice cream parlor!]
This is what it looks like this summer.
They had to rip out the ancient underground gas tanks. Rumor has it that they're going to put some new tanks in. That'd be fabulous!
The foundation had issues.
Not exactly a continuous foundation.
The crew had to jack up the building and slide a bar under the sill plate to support things while they laid a cinder block foundation between the old foundation blocks. Then they removed the old blocks.
They're taking their time.
It's so exciting!
