Stop 5 - Oaks Hardware

You have arrived at Oís Cafť. Just across the street is the BBQPro store, formerly Nardinelliís Oaks Hardware. The building started out in the early 1900ís as the Highway Garage, the name later changed to Greenís Garage when Sim Green bought the business. It remained much as the photos show until about 1945 when it probably burned.

The current building was opened as Kellamís Hardware and Variety about 1947. Don Lang bought the business in about 1951 and operated it as Oaks Hardware for several years before selling to Everett Nardinelli. Dick & Jeanne Hill bought the business in 1983 and son Dave inherited the property and converted it to BBQPro.

This the end of Loop 2. If the History Center is open, we would appreciate your coming in to tell us how it went.

Otherwise, send your comments to webhost@fairoakshistory.org.
