Today, C. A. Nethery Hardware is owned by Susan Mills Nethery, Ellen Beall Melton, and Laura Greer Tichnell and is kept open largely because of its historical value to the county. After Uncle Charlie passed on in 1942, the store went to C. A. Nethery, Jr. – better known locally as “Buddy”. In 1996 the store was passed on to Gene Nethery.
When you pass the old stove pictured here, you can almost hear the mumbled whisperings of the countless stories and tall tales that must have passed around it on many a winter’s evening of the past.
And if you still have that old mule powered plow and are getting ready to turn your field, you can still find plow points and parts here.
Today, Nethery Hardware carries antiques, hardware and home items, and has quite a few relics for you to browse through.
