Five Days at the Firnbach & Raupp General Store

The Firnbach & Raupp General Store was an essential part of the Buffalo Grove community. It was the place where residents purchased food, farming equipment and household items. It also served as a place of social gathering, as one would often meet friends when shopping. This summer, seventy eight receipts from September 1, 1919 to September 5, 1919 were catalogued by Ari, a Buffalo Grove High School senior. This exhibit displays items purchased during five days at the Firnbach & Raupp General Store.
