Fowler's Food Store

"I just get goosebumps just thinking about it right now, the way the crowds would just cheer [the Lincoln High School marching band] on, and especially when we got up there by Fowler's where the Christmas Parade went."

- Clarke A. Egerton, Jr.

Fowler's Food Store opened in 1920 and occupied a few different locations on Franklin Street between then and when it was sold in the late 1970s. The best known location may be 306 W. Franklin Street.
