Wednesday marked the one-year anniversary of an early-morning fire that destroyed three businesses on Butternut Street.

One year later, 5D Hats has moved into a new building and says business is close to where it was this time last year.

The owner says hat shop owners across the country helped find antique hat-making equipment to replace what was lost in the fire.

The only difference is that the family is no longer in the store that was once their home. But Albus says the new store has the potential for new memories, and will be his family's home until he can no longer make hats.
