Welcome to the 2017 Lopez Commemorative Mug
Herbert M Kellogg (1869) learned the jewelry business from his uncle in Towanda. He and the uncle opened a branch jewelry store in Lopez in 1890. Herbert then bought the business outright in 1892 and ran it adding toilet articles, patent medicines, and other commodities. The Lopez building had a portion of the store that was used by Dr J. L. Christian who operated a drug store. Herbert M Kellogg (1892, most knew him as Morris) grew up and helped with the store for a while but then was not used as a store for some time. In early 50’s, Betty and John Kravitz rented it and maintained a small business for a short time selling shoes and clothing. This mug is the Kellogg Store.
While on the Lopez Mugs, many that started collecting these mugs have passed on and each year we need less and less. I will order mugs for all that are on standing order only. If you know you want to be on standing order, please do contact JoAnn.
