Vernell Doyle, president of the Sharpsburg Historical Society, invites the community to the Monday, April 16, meeting as it presents “Shopping in Sharpsburg.”
A panel of local residents who worked in the six general stores will talk about the old days before supermarkets.
All are invited to come to share memories and help preserve the history of the stores that carried almost everything needed for home and garden.
The little stores are gone, but the buildings about town still show evidence of their existence.
The meeting will be in Town Hall starting at 7 p.m.
For more information, call 301-992-9767.
