Property Highlights:Historic O A Hall hardware store in Twin City, GA. This property is in need of repair and we encourage bidders to inspect this property. This property includes the former store, a 40x60 pre-fab metal building, and a vacant lot. The store originally opened in 1929! HISTORY OF O. A HAll STORE: O.A Hall Store was established in 1929 by Oatis Alva Hall Sr. and his wife Georgia Belle Rich Hall. The store changed locations in 1936 when they moved into a newly built store building which was very close to the original store building. The new store was built by Mr. /hall’s brother Alton Hall and his father-in-law Charlie Rich. The Halls celebrated the opening of the new store by having a community dance inside the new store before it was opened. O.A Hall store catered to both farmers and town people. They sold anything a farmer would need as well as groceries, clothes, and work boots. They also bought pecans which they sold to a candy co. in Augusta and also sold them to fruit stands in Flordia. In 1948 Mr. Hall had a building built that adjoined their store. The building had a store downstairs with living quarters upstairs. There was a kitchen downstairs as well as a bathroom and outdoor shower. Bobby and Ethel Henderson ran the store for Mr. Hall as well as a mobile rolling store that served people who lived in the country. The store was known as Hall and Henderson. O.A Hall, Jr. (Bud) joined the business in the early 1950’s.. Mr. Hall passed away in 1961. His Son O. A Hall Jr. (who was known as Bud) and his wife Georgia continued to run the business. The Hendersons retired in 1966 and moved to Greymont. The Hall family decided to close Hall and Henderson at that time and used the building to store pecans. The family continued to run the business with Bud’s wife Madolyn and his brother George joining the business in the late 1990s after they retired from their respective jobs. The store was widely known for buying pecans. People from surrounding counties brought their pecans to sell. They started buying pecans shortly after the business started in 1929 and continued through the 2021- 2022 season. The Hall family continued to run the business until December 2022.
