This photo of the offices of Frear and Sons was taken Nov. 17, 1928. J. Allen Frear Jr. operated farms near Dover and was president of J.A. Frear and Sons, which sold fertilizer, farm machinery, milk and fuel throughout the area. He was a U.S. senator from 1949 to 1960; Frear Elementary School in Rising Sun is named after him.

Dover turns 300 this year. A new photo every Thursday.
