    • The June 13, 2006 issue of the Sabine County Reporter featured the "All Things Historical" column by Bob Bowman titled "Nethery's Store." The oldest continually operated business in Sabine County, Nethery's was begun by C. A. Nethery, who came to Milam from Patroon as a young man. He and is wife, Amanda built a home on Main street and later opened a general store and saloon. The first store was burned during a snowstorm in 1913, but a new store was quickly built. The "new" store is still standing. After his father's death in 1942, C.A. "Buddy" Nethery, Jr. operated the store until his death. His nephew's, Gene and Doule Nethery kept the store open until 2000, selling hardware and providing a place for local dominoe players to meet. It is currently operated by Ellen Melton, Laura Tichnell, and Susan Nethery as an antique store.
