Business time capsule: Heniken Barbershop in Woodstock

Although heavy snow still covers the ground, coming political elections and spring training make the local barbershop the perfect place to indulge in “hot stove” baseball discussions and local political and social gossip. In every community across the county, barbershops have played an important role. This 1928 photograph of the Heniken Barbershop, once at 235 N. Benton St., Woodstock, is a classic example. The building now houses a smoke shop facing the train tracks. Ray Heniken came to Woodstock as a barber after being seriously wounded at Soissons, Germany, during World War I. He began his career in Woodstock working in Jack Rowe’s shop on Main Street. Within two years, he opened a three-chair shop and continued its ownership for 25 year
