Before my time, folks have said there used to be an antiques place on Columbia Road where Pakulis Farm Supply used to be out near Tire Clinic. This had to be back in the '30s and '40s; could the name have been Haskell's? BTW, I remember going to Pakulis when I was little and the secretary in the office would always have treats for little kids. I think Wright's Tractor Equipment was out on Rt. 195, probably near where the Great Western and cleaners are now. I just remember going there past Park Spring before there was any Eastbrook Mall. And I recall that Kahn Tractor was Mannings in N. Franklin. Wrights sold Case tractors, Pakulis, John Deere and Mannings had Fords, Fordsons.
