Mystery of Caseville Mercantile Co.

Few Clues of the Caseville Mercantile Co. 

It was only a single black and white image. Found at the Caseville Historical Museum it’s faded and somewhat over developed but it clearly shows the name; Caseville Mercantile. The problem is that there is no mention of this store in the typical public records.  We are still trying to identify if the building exists today but locals say its still alive as the Helping Hands Resale and Thrift Store across from the United Methodist Church.

Caseville Mercantile

Since our online store ThumWind-Mercantile,  (now shutdown) also used a similar name we are intrigued. If any of our readers have more information. Let us know.
