Book It: Newest Bremen store welcomed downtown

August 7, 2014

BREMEN – In 1912, J Huff erected a building which still bears his name way atop the frontpiece facing Bremen's main street.
The building has obviously served the town well, most recently as the headquarters of the venerable Quinn realty operation.
But even Mr. Huff could not have imagined, more than 100 years after he opened for business, a new bookstore would occupy his building, a few doors down from the famous Wooden Peel.
Yet it has.
Michella Smith owns and operates “Inspired.”
To simply call it a bookstore is an insult.
