Lost Huntington: Huntington Dry Goods

HUNTINGTON - In 1871, the year of the city's birth, Bradley W. Foster came to Huntington and built a two-story wooden hardware store on the southwest corner of 3rd Avenue and 9th Street. In 1894, he replaced the wooden structure with a three-story brick and stone building. Foster's original retail store ultimately evolved into the Foster-Thornburg Hardware Co., a major wholesale firm.
