D. RIXMANN HARDWARE & LUMBER
Rixmann's was a fascinating place for a young boy to visit. They had glass a enclosed case on the left where they had knives, pliers, hammers, and all sorts of such interesting tools. Off to the right was a rather cluttered collection of bigger hardware items on the floor or hanging from the walls. Walking on thru, there was a counter and office on the left. Beyond that was the lumber yard, with lumber storage buildings and all kinds of lumber.
