This interesting building hosts some of the very few businesses in our town of Boxford, Massachusetts. This "one stop shop" contains the post office, a bank branch, a small restaurant and a few offices. You can tell how long people have lived in town by which name they call it. The old-timers refer to it as "Jack's" after the owners who bought the restaurant in 1947. People who are newer to town tend to call it "Wayne's" after the current owners who took over the business in 1978. The people who refer to it by the name on the sign "Boxford Community Store" have probably never actually been there ;-)
This is one more painting for a fundraiser for local schools.
