Connecting Walvoords & Walvoorts together Past, Present, and Future

Photo of the Week, August 13, 2012

This week’s photo is also of the Walvoord General Store in Holland, Nebraska in the early 1900s.  At this date, William O. Walvoord’s son, John Christian Walvoord (1879-1964), had taken over the store, hence the name J. C. Walvoord’s Store.  This is the east entrance to the original store.  Last week’s photo showed the south entrance which was previously a competing store.  Next door to the store’s left, is the Dutch Reformed Church in Holland, Nebraska.  The picket fence to the right surrounded the home of Willam O. Walvoord.

Thanks again to Ann Walvoord Graff for providing this wonderful photo!
