Sara Store



At one time the Sara community boasted a sawmill, a cheese factory, school and the store/post office. After the post office was dissolved in 1905 the building became a general store. The attached house was built in the late 1920s to early 1930s. 

The Sara Store represents the traditional, rural post office/general store, which was once a common feature of Clark County. The storefront shaded by a broad full-width porch and the construction techniques such as tongue-and-groove and the many period window treatments are distinctive traditions of the rural commercial building.
