The original structure of the town was the smaller square building in the picture set below labeled "Post Office". The building was first used as a general store. Later the larger building was constructed, assuming the role of store. The smaller building was then used as a combination print shop and post office. The smallest building on the property was somehow used as a bicycle repair shop. The community of Newell has the distinction of being the first place that kerosene was sold in Anderson County. Afraid of the explosive nature of the new liquid, the grandfather of the current land owner stored the flammable material in the bike shop.
The land is owned by a senior gentleman who repairs bulldozers and antique military equipment. The garage on the property has many of his parts and pieces as do the antique junked vehicles behind the shop. I'll feature the vehicles in another blog entry.
