    I haven’t lived in Spfld for a while. Is this the north side of Adams, between 4th and 5th? I believe Leath Furniture had a store in this block at one time.

    Thanks.

  2. It is the north side, but I don’t know if Leath was down there. Stern’s Furniture was on 6th, just north of Adams.

    I believe Leath’s furniture was on Adams,but on the SW corner of 7th.

    The sportsman’s Center was owned by the Hoops family. Young Tom Hoops was a classmate of mine. That was when you could by hunting and fishing equipment from someone that knew something about what they were selling!
