Ullom's Hardware, Wallpaper 
and Paint Store

West Chestnut Street, Washington, PA

Ullom's Hardware, Wallpaper and Paint Store was a fixture for many years at 56 West Chestnut Street in Washington, PA. Proprietors Lantz Hupp and Maude (Hinerman) Ullom sold a variety of goods. Their daughters passed by every day on their way to and from school, and regularly stopped in after school to get some chocolate candy.
