Jeff Young - According to Virginia McConnell in Bayou Salado, the Garos General Store started life in Chubb’s Ranch (later called Newitt), and was moved to Garos in 1885 on two flat cars. By the turn of the Century it was in the hands of A. S. Turner.
In the early 1930s, some of the walls were covered in wood shingles. In the first picture, note the bundle of shingles leaning against the fence, an the tar-paper between the clapboard and shingles. In the following pictures, note that the lower section of the false front was shingled, but not the side entry vestibule.
While the building is currently in a rather forlorn state, I was able to measure it in the summer of 2016.
