About

Burke’s Book Store which has survived the depression and two World Wars, was begun in 1875 as a family business and stayed that way for 3 generations. Walter Burke Sr. gave birth to Burke’s Book Store at 180 N. Main Street shortly after the Civil War, selling books, newspapers, slates, tin toys. Walter Burke Jr. (born above the book store) took ownership in 1911, adding public and parochial textbooks to the inventory in1946. William Burke followed in his father’s footsteps, taking ownership in 1958 and began selling used and antiquarian books.
