The basement under the eastern section of the building has a wide door that once was used to allow livestock in. Cubbies in the wall opposite the door held the manger, and McCrossin has left them as testament to that earlier use. He has also left in place every early nail or spike that had been hammered into either the stone walls or the wooden framing. A barrel roller is stored here, a long, dolly-like contraption that allows a worker to transport a barrel along its handles to a new position. To one side stands the original store's safe and scale. A new porch, copied from the one in an old photograph found at the courthouse, was added as well.
The main level of the east wing, four steps above the store level, has two areas. The dining room toward the front is fitted with tables and chairs. The back area has been refitted as a kitchen furnished with a six-burner gas stove, a walk-in refrigerator-freezer and baked-enamel steel cladding. McCrossin built the kitchen to commercial code.
