P. Sones Hardware Store

Helix, Oregon 97835, United States

Created By: Lorin Kubishta


Originally built and owned by Sones and Walker, J.S. Norvell bought this hardware store in 1904 and lived next door. Norvell ran the business as J.S. Norvell & Co. for many years.

Early in its history, Norvell also branched out and sold insurance policies out of the business as a way to diversity its offerings. The store also sold various lines of farm equipment such as plows, rod weeders, and tillage implements.

It was eventually purchased by John Freeman Young in the 1950s and later, Bob Fowler. Genericaly, it has mostly been known as the Helix Hardware Store.

Due to its current poor condition and lack of a foundation, the building is slated to be demolished.
