Wiley's Place

Title

Wiley's Place

Description

Black and white image of a bar sandwiched in between an appliance store and a Firestone Farm store. Large Coca-cola signs dominate the top sign, with lettering indicating that the bar has been in business since 1875. Beer signs hang in the window, which is set in a wall made up of opaque glass bricks. Located on Main Street in Hillsboro, Wiley's Place is still a bar, as of 2012, though it is currently known as 'Joe's Pasttime Tavern.' The Firestone store has been torn down, and the appliance store is now a barber shop.
