     A. A. Adams and Addy C. Adams (note Addy was the best we could make out from writing on a plate on back of her picture).

     Thanks to Gary Sager letting me photograph their pictures.

     A.A. Adams in 1864 had a new brick store started with completion in 1864.  Joe Spencer was paid $317.90 for laying wall and building material except brick from July through October 1864.  74,800 bricks were used probably from Bauersach's in the Green Acres area. Charles F. Smith Sons were paid for installing gutters.  Aug. 2, 1866, James LeConey, a fine carpenter was paid $53.74 for labor, $29.92 for 369 feet of lumber and $3.60 for 45 feet of lumber for a soda counter. Someone was paid 50 cents for putting up a mantle and another $1.50 for   hanging sash. This according to papers the Arrowoods found in a ledger.

     Adams was the nephew of Dr. Edward R. Allen who had a drug store in Piketon but 2 years after the county seat was moved to Waverly he moved his drug store to Waverly and apprently run for
him by his nephew.

     A. H. Dean took over the drug store business in 1876 when Dr. Allen retired to devote his life to the practice of medicine.  Following Dean's Drug store it was Noel's Restaurant.  In 1962 Mr. and Mrs. Winston Arrowood bought the building, moving his Jewelry store from his previous location on North Market street (nest to the Village Antique Shop) and was bought by Gary Sager in 2008 to become Prussia Valley Dulcimers Music Shop.

Prior to the park this was the Waverly cemetery, started 16 Dec 1846. The bodies were moved in1882 and the monuments that were movable were taken probably at the same time to the Evergreen
Cemetery.  June 5, 1951 the new city building was opened on this land.  The building is now used by the Waverly Police and Fire station.
