"Ray N. Smith opened his shoe store in the late 1920s. He sold several brands of shoes for adults and children. Just a few doors north of Langworthy's clothing store, it was a convenient stop for local shoppers refreshing family wardrobes. The family owned and operated business continued until the late 1980s."
