Slavia store; Stanko store


The general store built by Martin Stanko near the current intersection of SR426 and Slavia Road in 1926 served as the only commercial entity for the little community. Residents of Oviedo, too, patronized the little store, where they could gas up their trucks and cars and purchase the items advertised on the painted exterior: soft drinks and candies, tobacco, cigars and cigarettes. Using a generator for the first several years, until electrical power lines served the area, the store could refrigerate food and beverages and offered the only "electric lights" for miles around. It also served as a residence for the owner and his family. A 2015 digital image shows that the building (under different ownership) is still standing.
