Egan - Kane Hardware
At 125 Main Avenue were located two of Weston’s best known businesses: in the late 19th century, Egan Hardware; and for much of the 20th century, E. J. Kane Hardware. The building that housed Egan’s was destroyed in the great business section fire of March 29, 1896.
Backstory and Context
Kane’s, which began business in the early 1900s, occupied the presently standing storeroom until September 1993. A successor to the business, B & E Hardware, operated there for a time. More recently, the site was home to a restaurant — Kane’s Grub and Pub — and currently houses another restaurant — Thyme Bistro.
