It's "Blue Monday" meme day, and not much could be a prettier
shade of blue than the awning at Butler Truax Jewelers.
The history of this store dates back to 1845, and during the Civil War,
its owner, S.F. Hobbs, a native of Maine, went off to fight for the South.
The story of how his bride saved the store's silver and jewelry
during the Battle of Selma in 1865 is told here.
The business changed locations through the decades, and in 2002,
Butler Truax renovated and moved into the former Kress building
on Broad Street. It's a real beauty!
