The Small family lived on the Emmitsburg Road across from the famous Sherfy Farm. It was here in their living room that they started to sell relics; mostly bullets, shrapnel, cannonballs and other excavated artifacts.

As business increased, it was Chet's wife Pat who suggested the "relic business" move out of her house. In 1972 Chet and his sons, with the help of other neighborhood kids, built a small dutch-style barn into which the rusty relics moved (visible at left in the photo). The Smalls operated in this location until 1979 when they sold their property to the National Park Service.
