HOWLETT-EVINS BROTHERS STORE ACCOUNT BOOKS, 1839-1947

These thirty-nine account books and two folders of accounts and tax records from 1839 through 1947 contain accounts of the Howlett General Store in Mooresville, which later moved to Culleoka where it became the Evins Brothers Store in 1893. The business was organized in Mooresville and acquired by Sterling Brown Howlett around 1850. It was then called Howlett’s Store. In 1859, when the Nashville and Decatur Railroad reached Culleoka, Mr. Howlett built the first store in the new village. Howlett’s store was not operated during the Civil War but was opened again afterward. Mr. Howlett died in 1879, leaving the store to his nephew, Captain I.J. Howlett. In 1893, W.S. and Benson Evins bought the store. It then became known as Evins Store or Evins Bros. Store.
