Stevens and Enger

The second oldest business house of Cooperstown was temporarily quartered in the Odegaard and Thompson store in January of 1883.  The hardware firm of Julius Stevens and Anton Enger built their store, 25'x 50', two stories high, on Block 73, Lot 5 in April of 1883.

After the death of Julius Stevens in 1889, Mr. Enger continued the hardware business until April of 1902, when he sold the store to N.J. Evenson, a hardware merchant, and I.D. Allen jeweler.

Other early hardware and tins-hops included A.N. Adams Tin-shop of 1883.  He sold his small store to Greenleese and Company in 1884, but continued in hardware business until March of 1889.  Merrill and Luce had a hardware firm in 1883.
