J.J. Newberry opened in North Adams in 1926, and closed in 1993. It consisted of a three-story building fronting Main St, built in 1867, and a long attached building behind which was used primarily for storage. In 2001, the owner of the vacant building demolished the attached building behind, and renovated the main building, after which it was opened as Moulton’s General Store in 2003. The original J.J. Newberry’s sign, missing letters and all, was taken down, and the letters were mounted on a wall in Moulton’s, and the new store sign copied the Newberry’s style. Moulton’s vacated the space in 2008, and the Newberry’s sign was donated the North Adams Historical Society. The following two pages of photos were taken during the demolition and renovation period.
