One Of The Oldest General Stores In Nebraska Has A Fascinating History

When the The Kacirek-Woita General Store was built in Weston in 1894, it was much like any other building around it. The Victorian architecture and ornate but subdued flourishes blended in perfectly with the other structures on the street. But slowly, Weston’s landscape changed. Some of the old buildings didn’t survive. This general store building, however, has stood strong for more than 120 years…though there were some hiccups.
