Patrick McElroy opened a general store here sometime during the 1840’s. He may not have actually owned the property at that time but in 1866 there is a record of him finishing the inside of a second storey so the Masonic lodge could meet there. This clapboard wood frame building has a t-shaped plan with the store entrance under the gable and the residence to the side. In 1905 it became the Brown Brothers Store and is now in residential use. Patrick was also a notary public, an insurance agent and a member of the local Council..
