Crock from Kerrville's Noll's Grocery

Noll's Grocery crock, probably from around the turn of the last century.
A reader of my newspaper column, Mr. Dub Crowder, brought by an old crock from Noll's Grocery this week.  I thought it was pretty interesting.  It is about the size of coffee can.
Noll's Grocery was somewhere near the intersection of Washington and Water streets in downtown Kerrville, near where "The Home Center" is today.
I'm not sure what they sold in this little crock.  I wonder if it was butter.  Or I wonder if it was just an advertising thing they gave away.


  1. H. Noll Stock Co. building still exists. It IS the Home Center Store. The building was erected about 1906, so it is more than 100 years old.

  2. I'm not an expert, but I am older than the hills, and I still have a pretty good memory, so I will offer my two cents worth.

    Not wanting to contradict the previous comment, I will simply say that I remember a different building on the corner of Washington and Water.

    It was a very large wooden building. It was torn down in the late 1950's or early 1960's.

    The Home Center building was constructed on that same spot.
