    There was a railroad through there until the late 50's. Perhaps some kind of loading or warehouse facility.

    I'm curious. What prompted businesses to close Wednesday afternoons?

    I don’t have a clue to the rhyme or reason. I moved to the area from PA in the mid 70’s and that was the first I ever heard of such a practice. If memory serves, large stores like grocery stores or Lowes kept normal hours but most everything else closed up at lunch on Wednesday and was open half a day on Saturday. The DMV gigged me a couple times with this when I’d get off early from work, not thinking about it being Wednesday, to get one of my new junkers tagged and titled only to find the office closed.

    Interesting stuff right there. It's one of the things I love about cross country travel - especially by MC. You find out about these little "local idiosyncrasies", or more likely you find out there these ARE "local idiosyncrasies" that you wouldn't have imagined even existed.

    Thanks!

    We had something similar in the UK called 'half day closing' in my youth if I can recall that far back. You still come across it in rural spots but only in small private businesses.

    See the stuff you can learn hanging out on the corner of Internet and local knowledge. Something that I had never heard about is now known to be an international thing.
