This week’s Tour Through Time provides an update on the Feb. 17 Tour Through Time article on Carlisle Bus Depot. Information has been provided by Lisa Milos regarding the property’s history after the bus depot.
George and Georgette Milos moved their family to Carlisle in 1968 and purchased the former Crown Distributing building, located at 130 Dickinson Ave., from the late Frank Bentley.
In 1972, the Milos family moved their business into the old bus station in Carlisle along North Pitt Street. In the process of remodeling, the Milos made a minibeer museum to showcase their collection. That included a wall of 500 antique beer bottles, many from local businesses of years past, an antique beer wagon with wooden kegs and barrels, a wall of cooper’s tools (to make barrels) and pictures depicting the process drawn by a local artist.
The family sold the business in 1982. It remained a beer distributor for several more years, and then was sold and became a print shop.
Tour Through Time will run Saturdays in The Sentinel as a joint project with the Cumberland County Historical Society.
Sentinel photographer Michael Bupp will work with staff at the Historical Society each week to offer a look at Carlisle and the surrounding area through the years.
