This photo was graciously loaned to
me by Florence Tate, Town of Warwick Historian and dates to 1874
or 1875. It shows the original Burt Store location on the right
and another building on the left(where the arrow points) that
I have not yet identified. If you can help identify it please
This is a picture of the original Burt
store in about 1905.
I have recently been in contact with
some one researching the Burt family and was told that this building
was actually the barn on the Burt Homestead and that it was converted
into a store. This seems very plausible to me as the appearance
of it suggests the look of a barn with an addition to the front.
This building was located on the left side of where the Mill Pond
driveway is now. It was demolished
some time around 1910. An 1823-1826 ledger was rescued from the
building and is in the collection of the Warwick Historical Society.
Stephen Augustus Burt ran a general store business
here for 49 years and 8 months.
