Last week's question was "" and there were no guesses. It is the Chauncey Chapman store. A clue for those who haven’t seen the photo is the monument in the McKinstry cemetery that is behind the store. The cemetery is now in front of the library.

Lynn Fahy, from the Ellington Historical Society says:
"The Chauncey Chapman store is pictured here in 1881. Charles Price, a store clerk is seated in the wagon at the left. Mr. Chapman is standing on the porch. The sign in front advertises flour, butter, cheese, lard, beef, and hams. The store was destroyed by fire, and the land purchased by Francis Hall of Elmira, New York in 1900 as the site for the Hall Memorial Library."
