If you look at pictures from the past, the Village of Wilson was a thriving and busy place. Here is a walk down memory lane, or information that might be interesting to “newbies,” courtesy of Jeanine Johnson. Do you remember:

• The train depot when it was in operation

• The post office on Young Street

• Okie’s Drug Store

• The liquor store, coffee shop, now Amy Lee’s

• Wilkie’s Bar, now Jeans Bar and Grill

• The Barber Shop, now part of the Wilson Free Library

• Kenyon’s, now T & R Corner Store

• The business where you could take your dry cleaning, buy shoes and buy your Wilson coat, and Ivy Thompson always remembered to give you your S&H Green Stamps. It is now a dentist office and Garden Gate

• Nevins Grocery Store

• Pettit’s Appliance Store, restaurant and laundromat

• Horton’s Hardware, Farm & Garden Supply, now a parking lot owned by the fire hall.

• Wilson State Bank, Marine Midland, HSBC, First Niagara

• The movie theater that burned down

• The gas station, Hibbard’s, Village Meeting Place, now Matty’s

• Goldie’s, Lakeside Food King, now Wilson Lakeside IGA
