The Helton home was originally constructed in two phases. Around 1941, the front half was constructed and served as a local barber shop. In 1954, the second half was added and was used as a living space for tenants. In 1962, the back half became a beauty salon and stayed that way until 1970. The barber shop closed a few years later and the entire space was turned into a framing shop. Ms. Helton’s father purchased the building in 1983, operating Wallace’s Antiques for five years before relocating his business farther up Main St. Her father rented the spaces to several entrepreneurs until 2013 when it became a storage space for his antiques. Ms. Helton decided to renovate it into a home in 2017. Ms. Helton’s love of antiques and unique items lends to her cozy flea market interior design. She is proud to have rescued the space from falling down and turn it into the welcoming home you see today.
