Shoemaker Market in Wheeler, KS today

The building was the village post office and grocery store for decades. The post office in this Northwest Kansas community was closed and the market soon closed as well. The building included a residence in the back end. It was finally abandoned in the late 80's. The structure still stands on the only paved road in the village of perhaps a dozen people.
