Seen here is the inside of McGuire’s store, c. 1930. At left is Benjamin F. McGuire. According to former resident Lottie Dyer Schneider, “The Andrew Hutchison store, later operated by Ben McGuire, was on the corner of Elden and Spring Streets […] 733 Elden Street.” Mr. McGuire operated his store in the 1920s and 1930s. He later sold his store to Raymond Printz in 1934. McGuire was a former Herndon town councilman, Herndon School Board member, and a Herndon Volunteer Fire Department officer. He died in 1937. Looking at historic aerial photographs, we can see that his former wood frame store building was taken down sometime in the mid/late 1950s. A brick building was built in its place and now houses the Copan Restaurant.
