After starting business in 1898, Jules Olivier built this store in 1908 to serve his growing plantation. Mr. Olivier was commissioned the community's first postmaster in 1898 and his store housed the first Lydia post office until the arrival of rural free delivery. Selling everything from aspirins to plow shares, the store soon became a community hub. It also housed administrative offices for his sugar plantation of over one thousand acres
