Zenorsville store located two miles west of Gilbert. Zenorsville, a once thriving community, was site of coal mine. Mine was on west side of Squaw Creek about 1/2 mile south of blacktop road running west from Gilbert. Lily Johnson, donor of this photo, is granddaughter of Jim Hutchison, owner of store and the mine. When the mine gave out, all of community's stores and some of its residences were moved into Gilbert.
