At 1393 South Main Street in Cheshire is a Victorian house built in 1903 by Elmer Ives. On the same property, known as Ives Corner, Ives erected a small store building. Calling it the “Why Not Rest” store, he sold tobacco, candy, soda and patent medicine. It was also a trolley freight station. The store was destroyed in 1953 when it was hit by an out-of-control vehicle.
