Twin Towers Barber Shop
602 E. Broadway, Poplin, MO
According to county property records this small building was built in
1925. In 1936 it was listed as a stone building with open porch/canopy
in front. This makes me think it was originally a gas station with a covered
pump drive. That space between the column in front and the original building
has been enclosed, which is easy to see in these photos by the dark colored
section of the lower wall. The original building starts where the dark
color ends. The building is located at Broadway St.& Galena Ave.
In 1949 it was Broadway Poultry Company, In 1955 the front canopy had
been enclosed and in 1956 it was Harper's Barbecue. It was also Betty
Lee's Antiques and as late as 2013 it was Twin Towers Barber Shop. The
building has seen at least one and maybe two additions, the shed roof
sections on the rear and east sides.
