This is the George B. Dent Harness Shop on Main Street, located where Baxter Orthodontics is today. He made new harnesses, leather goods, repaired harnesses and repaired shoes. Mr. Dent operated the harness shop for  many years, up until the 1940s. According to Sadie McIntire Powell, Dent sold his building to Russ and Ethel Haynes, and the shop became the pool hall.
