The historic Crawford Wells General Store, on Keele Street in King City, was built about 1863.
After almost 150 years it ceased to operate as a general store last year, but has just reopened as a presentation gallery and sales office for one of the new King City housing developments that are dramatically changing the appearance of the village. Apparently, the old Crawford Wells sign has been stored away and may be available for a new life, once the 'King Station' housing developer vacates the building. Many villagers are eagerly anticipating the next reincarnation of this venerable landmark.
