Historic store near the Katy Trail to be renovated

According to a story in the Wichita Eagle, a historic store building near the Katy Trail in Easley will soon be restore:
The Easley Store was built in 1890 by William Easley, a third-generation Boone County resident. He ran the store and was the first of several Easleys and others to serve as postmaster for the post office that was incorporated into the store in 1893.

Sapp said the store was supposedly built a mile or two away from the site it occupies today. When the MKT rail line came through, the store was moved, presumably to get it closer to the depot. It sold groceries, drugs and hardware and, in more recent years, rented bicycles for use on the Katy Trail.
