Manning Mercantile - 1910
Located at 20 N. Main Street Alpharetta, GA

James H. and Thomas H. Manning operated the store in a wooden building that burned in 1902.

It was replaced by a one-story brick building that later housed the U.S. Post Office, Bates Grocery, Cowart Shoe Shop, Cook Shoe Shop and the Alpharetta Welcome Center. A second story was added in the 1990s.
