J.E. Thrasher General Store

J. E. Thrasher General Store


Located near the Smith building, John E. Thrasher       Senior’s original store burned in 1911.  The warehouse served as general store until a new brick building was completed down the street in 1923.

This cashier’s cage in Thrasher’s store looks almost as it did during 1911-1923, featuring a 1908 typewriter with both a  lower and upper keyboard, a 1923 cash register,  an adding machine (circa 1910), and sets of keys used in the warehouse and various out -buildings and gates. Several original spindles for holding charge tickets hang on the wall with a coat typical of the 1920s.  J.E. Thrasher Junior's straw hat dates from around 1910.  Original books of account records are on display.  The carbide light fixture is one of a dozen that illuminated the warehouse  before electricity came to Micanopy.
