Pretty sure the dark, 2nd building from the left is what is now our downtown Ashland showroom. Very cool to see what old Main Street looked like back in the horse & buggy days. Not sure what year this was from, but if you look super close I think it says "Shoes" on the front of our store.
Jake Waymire was an accomplished stone mason and brick maker who came to Grapevine around 1900 following a growth boom ushered in on the heels of the railroad which came to the city in 1888. In a time when all sorts of readymade building materials were being shipped in packed rail cars, Jake made all his bricks by hand from local clay and fired them in his kiln located northwest of the city center. Many of the buildings Jake helped to brick still remain standing today along mainstreet's west side. They help to make Grapevine's historic mainstreet the treasured landmark it is today. To learn more about the history that went into making Grapevine the wonderful community it is today, come and pay us a visit at the Grapevine Settlement to City Museums located at 206 W. Hudgins street. #mustache#oldmainstreet#losttrades#gvtexasmuseums#museumselfie
