Memories: Campbell Sporting Goods
Campbell’s Sporting Goods, located at the intersection of Market Street and Water Street and pictured here in the 1950s, was the favorite store for hunters and fishermen. I was able to purchase .22 caliber LR bullets for my Winchester rifle when I was 12 years old. The building was also known as The Haymarket Building. In the 1980s the Campbell’s ground floor was renovated into a restaurant called Cardwell’s. There were a few other food establishments after Cardwells. The Liberty Tree was one of them. Today it is occupied by La Stella’s Pizzeria, which has kept a lot of the Victorian charm.
