One of the first retail establishments built in a small town during the early 1900s was a general store selling food, household goods and hardware to people living nearby

The town of Woody, named for Sparrel Woody, was established about 1889 in the mountains north of Bakersfield. Trying to entice settlers to the area, Joseph Weringer laid out a townsite named Weringdale on land adjacent to Woody in 1909. The name Weringdale given to the townsite eventually changed to Woody.

Francis and Alda Weringer donated this building to the Kern County Museum in 1957.
