|Hidden Treasure on Main Street?|
|The new owner of the Colonial Spa at 389 Main Street had already struck gold once when he removed the suspended ceiling and paneling while remodeling the shop. As the owner of Cravings, which had been in business across the street at 400 Main Street for 9 years, Rick Campbell had always dreamed of having an old fashioned ice cream parlor. With the Colonial Spa, his dream has come true, and customers old and young have admired the wonderful job he's done in restoring the shop's tin ceilings, tile floors and Art Deco counters.
But his new property also contains another store: it had been an optometrist's office for many years. When the paneling came down and the suspended ceiling was taken off, another treasure was found. Painted murals lined the white tile walls; another wonderful tin ceiling is in place and a little mystery has sprung up: what was the store that commissioned the murals? They were painted in 1923, and historians and history buffs alike are scrambling to uncover the identity of the store that was in place there in 1923.
In the meantime, a tenant is sought for the shop. If you're in the market for a great Main Street location, and you'd like a store with lots of vintage charm, maybe this shop is for you!
