The Peoples Store

The Peoples Store

The Peoples Store (aka Guy Hazel’s Store, circa 1912). The Mary Carrico School currently stands where this store was located. In 1833, James Millay opened the first store in Knottsville on this site. In 1859, Joseph B. Aud and his brother Hilary T. Aud opened a store here called “J.B. Aud and Brother”. Sometime in the early 20th century this store passed to their nephew, Guy Hazel Sr. Eventually the store was sold to Bob Pence.
