Jones Home Center
Jones Home Center or as it was originally named, Jones Supply, opened in 1977, but it began long before that. In the 1950s, my grandfather Harvey Jones started the Upton Sweet feed mill and ran it for almost 20 years. In the mill, he began branching out into hardware and farm supplies so that local people could buy what they needed for farming and building without driving miles to get it. Before long, he purchased the Upton Hardware next to the mill but sold the property in 1976.
