A living estate sale will feature a pool table from the Engels Dry Goods Store in Luther, an historic building on Luther’s Main Street that was named to the National Register of Historic Places.
“Somewhere in the 1920s, Mr. Engels built these pool tables to help bring in more money to the store. The wood from the tables is supposedly from black walnut trees cut from along Deep Fork River. Mr. Engels built the 6 pool tables, but eventually needed the floor space and put some in storage. We bought one at the big Engels auction,” said Beverly White.
Michael Engels has two locations of the store, opening the first one in 1910. It offered dry goods, and later a soda fountain.
