Not sure of the dates for this (these?) structure(s) yet; if I had to make a guess I'd say the store started in the 1920s. The main section may have originally been a dwelling, and appears to date to the 1880 to 1910 period. One of the smaller attached structures (on the west side) may have been the Carr Post Office, which operated from 1894 to 1908. This was once the "hub" of the Carr community.

Once part of the "Cooper Homeplace." Later Compton's Store.
