Shady Grove Store


La Porte City
at the Boehringer-Lange-Schreiber homestead

In 1886, W.C. Kenney built a wood frame two-story building at a place called Shady Grove (which was named for the Shady Grove Rural Independent School District). By 1898, the store boasted a telephone exchange and a post office. It was also in 1898 that the original store was destroyed by fire. Kenney immediately began work on a new building, which stood at the site until it was moved to the Boehringer-Lange-Schreiber homestead in 1986.
