A. Z. Scrivens Store, Sheakleyville

Andral Zonor Scrivens, Justice of the Peace for 18 years in Sheakleyville, Mercer County, PA, operated the general store from about 1912-1928. He lived next door to the store.

Scrivens bought the store from T. B. Marsteller about 1912, who had operated a grocery business.  Kit Dean and several others also conducted business in this store.

George Washington Moyer, who belonged to the Masonic order, had a blacksmith shop and his brothers Daniel and William had a carriage shop in the Scrivens Store. Daniel and William made carriages in the store while George did the blacksmith work, The carriage shop was called the "Carriage Paint shop", and was built about 1852 or earlier. Family tradition says that it is supposed that William was the one who had the shop built. He later went to Bloomington, Illinois, invested in land, had a grain elevator, and other lines of mercantile business.

He sold the carriage shop at Sheakleyville to Levi Morrison. Later a Mr. Hulbert and also a Mr. Davis had drug stores in this building.

This store was a two story, basement and attic building. The lower story was originally the blacksmith shop.
