City Directories and History: 1851 – J.R. Aiken and Co., 1961- Winnsboro Furniture Company
The 1912 Sanborn Insurance Map for Winnsboro shows this location as a vacant lot.
Mr. D. R. Flenniken ran a large general store in the vicinity of John McMeekin’s second generation Winnsboro Furniture company started by his father Hayne McMeekin in the late 1940’s. In the left side of this facility, the Waldrop family operated their radio and television shop. [Information provided by J.M. Lyles] The Waldrop’s shop was next to the M.W. Doty and Son business.
