Gun Shop Sign
LABEL NOTES: George Foltz made shoe lasts before the Civil War. He also made wooden shoe soles, several of which are in the WHS collection. During the Civil War, the demand for guns became so great that George became a gunsmith. His house stands (?, built in 1938) on the West Side of South Main Street, the third house south of Walnut Street. He had his gun shop at this residence. He died about 1870.
