Hinton Store, c. 1932

At the crossroads of the community was the Twin Wells store. The store stood along the old Eagle Ford Road between Dallas and Irving just north of the Eagle Ford crossing on the West Fork of the Trinity River.  H. P. Hinton, Sr., opened this store in 1924. Hinton sold the store after about ten years, but it remained in business into the 1950s. This photo is from about 1932.
