Gore's Hardware Store

Gore's Hardware Store on Openwood Street in Vicksburg is a Vicksburg icon. If you never had a chance to go inside, well, you've missed something. I mean, where can you find one other store in the southeast — or nation — that features a pair of green-eyed owl andirons in the window? And I bet you can't even find a metal bucket at Home Depot!


  1. You've gotta love those green-eyed owl andirons, Marty ... and I like the green trim on the building, too.

  2. Thank you for the photos. I worked at WVIM radio in the 1960's. At the time I was young and dumb. Today, I am still trying to comphrehend the significance of it all. -- Henry McClurg
