Fashion By The Hall Tree is a trendy women’s clothing boutique located at 206 N. 12th St. on the Centerville square.
The Hall Tree has been in Centerville since 1999, when it was owned by Karen Tisue. Emily Hanes, who attended school in Moravia and lives in Unionville, bought the store in 2011.
“I worked there part-time in 2007,” Hanes says. “I was a stay-at-home mom who wanted a little break. Karen was wanting to sell, and it all came together. It snowballed.”
The Hall Tree carries women’s clothing in junior to plus sizes. It also has a “Grandma’s corner” with baby clothes and gifts.
“We strive to have unique things, so you don’t see yourself walking down the street,” Hanes says. “We offer personal attention and customer service.”
The Hall Tree is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday – Friday and 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Drake is a duck billboard which recognizes the historical relationship between former Governor Francis Drake and Centerville. Francis Drake, a Centerville native, had a successful career as a lieutenant colonel, governor, businessman, banker, lawyer, railroad builder and founder of Drake University. The Drake billboards highlight interesting places to visit and display local history that connect the community to world events. At each Drake location, there are maps pointing out all of the places Drake can be found.
