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.
