Merrill Brothers Meat Market

Van Buren, Arkansas 72956, United States

Created By: Van Buren


Those were the days! Steak sold for 35 cents a pound, sides of beef and pork hung for display within the store’s huge arched setback, and a whirling ceiling fan stirred the air, keeping the flies at bay. The Merrill brothers must have enjoyed a steady business because this decorative building with elaborate brickwork originally ran the length that shops 514, 512 and 510 Main Street occupy today.
