The store was used as a Confederate recruiting station. It was just a simple general supply store. Many of my ancestors (Gum) signed up there. Some of these units were split up and combined into other groups. From memory I can recall the 25th Va. Inf. and 31st Va. Inf. Possibly the 19th and 62nd also. Not to sure about the last two. Have never seen a picture of the store but if you get your hands on one I would like to have a copy. Monterey was the county seat, guess you knew that. Good luck.
