Forke Store-1865


This store and mercantile is another good example of the German fachwerk construction, using adobe bricks rather than rammed earth. It is important to note that while it is exposed for display purposes, in its day fachwerk was covered with plaster and painted to present a more decorative appearance. The floor and ceiling are original.
