Albany County History
In December of 1983, Harold Bell generously donated the historic “Whitford General Store” building to the Town of Westerlo to be used as a library and historical museum. Mr. Bell made the donation in the memory of his beloved wife, Helen Taylor Bell, an avid reader and lover of history, she passed away in 1982.
The building had been used as a general store throughout the 1800’s and the early 1900’s by the Green family. Around 1910, it was leased to Edwin Hannay and used as a car repair shop and showroom for the new Model T Fords.
In 1915 it was purchased by Vernon Whitford and operated as an ice cream parlor and then expanded to a general store. Mrs. Bell, who worked as a clerk for Mr. Whitford, inherited the store in 1948 and continued to run it with her husband until her death. Mr. Bell passed away in December 1983, eleven days after the transfer of the building to the Town of Westerlo.
