Geocache Description:

Mr. Kerr was a man of principal.
The Texas Limited Sales, Excise and Use Tax Act was enacted by the 57th Legislature and became effective on September 1, 1961.

Kerr Hardware
You ain't gonna believe what is in this store, closed down in 1961. Take a peek in the windows, everthing is exactly like Mr. Kerr left it. Mr. Kerr got upset because the State of Texas had the audacity to require him to charge a sales tax. Needless to say, Mr. Kerr said he would "lock the doors" before he did this. The local legend goes that Mr. Kerr refused to charge the citizens sales tax and walked out and never came back. You will see brand new bicycles, tricycles, radios, fishing baskets, old wringer washing machines, riding toy tractors, appliances, on and on.
Step back into your childhood.
Like I said, "You ain't gonna believe this."
This place is a hidden treasure, enjoy the peek.
