  1. I remember the building as the Alpha Hardware and the smell of rope, oiled wood, and tobacco when entering the store. I remember buying number 6 nails scraped from rotating bins with a steel claw into a paper bag with my dad. My first purchase at the Alpha was 50 feet of 1/2 inch hemp rope, with money I made collecting discarded pop bottles. A little-known item is the Nevada City Alpha was the largest distributor of explosives throughout the Northwest, according to Uncle Fred a mining engineer. Alpha also delivered #2 heating oil to our homes. Sad to see the building today.
