Plaque Dedicated To Graves Family At Hub

By Staff, 10/27/20 2:57 PM

A plaque commemorating the donation of land at what is now “The Hub” was dedicated Tuesday morning by city officials.  The plaque briefly outlines the history of the Graves & Graves Law Firm which was previously housed in the former John P. Cox Drug Store building for several decades.  The building and property were donated to the city for construction of the Hub and the associated green space at Elm & 2nd downtown.  At least two members of the Graves family were on hand for the dedication.

In addition to the Graves Law Firm, the family was also active in Citizens National Bank and other businesses from about 1902 well into the 21st century.
