This barbershop started out as the post office in Bradshaw, Texas,  constructed in 1922 by Noah Bailey. It was moved to Old Abilene Town in the 1960’s where it stayed until purchased by Dr. Rode at a public auction. In the early 1900’s, a barbershop was a place where you could not only get a haircut and a shave but you could also have a bath or get your shoes shined. The barbershop was also the local hangout for men to discuss politics and other aspects of daily life.
