Maple Street Mall
The building that houses the Maple Street Mall has been in the same family since 1956. This excellent retail location on the courthouse square in downtown Mason served as a department store for 40+ years until the family business closed in the late 1990's. In 2008 the store was re-opened as the Maple Street Mall giving local collectors, crafters and talented "re-purposers" an opportunity to sell their treasures. Debbie, who manages the Maple Street Mall and grew up working in the family business, is the 3rd generation to work in this building.
