Weiss Brothers Meats and Groceries was across from the old jail location in Waverly, Ohio The balcony is now gone. The doorway in the middle led upstairs to where my family (Cartwright) lived;
  the door on the right was a furniture store owned by an older woman (We lived there in the early 40's). Next to the furniture store was a beauty shop. Further down on the left corner was a hardware
  store. This according to Barbara L. Jenkins

The "Brass Castle," once served as a tavern on the old road to Piketon, and was located at corner of Lock and Second Streets.  Picture dates from the early 1900's.

Starting about 1971 the front part of the building housed WIBO and early 1980s the station was moved out. Edward Jones was there for a while and the next tenant closed her business in 2013 and now occupied by an insurance business.

 Joseph F. Treber started his business in 1869 in Cynthiana and moved to Waverly in 1892. Prior to Treber moving into this building it had been a blacksmith shop. On the left is Branson Treber Sr. and on the right is Joseph Treber.  Branson Treber Sr. died in 1944. The building was added on to the back twice and probably early 50s a garage was put on the side which is now Tom Klinger's office.

Pike County Court House

Our Storm

    Pike county had rather a shaky little experience with the elements Saturday afternoon.  The lightning was particular vivid and wicked while the wind blew quite a fierce tempest.  The Court House tower was struck, shattered some and set on fire.  The latter being extinguished by Commissioner Motz and others.  Trees were uprooted and whole wheat fields in the valley on the hills were blow about in confusion.  It was a wind that blew Pike county good.
