The R. Connor Company Store
Stratford's first business was the R. Connor Company
Store. It was located on the comer of Third and Elm Streets.
(Currently Davels). It was started in 1892 out of neccesity for
the mill workers and their families. Looking at Gordon
Connor's speech used earlier in the book, it seems as if
anything one could imagine could be purchased at the store,
from corsets to coffins.
