From the left, Homer Hoyt's general store, Joseph Geyer's blacksmith shop and livery stable, Bill Beicke's saloon, Frank Slade's seed store and Peter Grader's saloon. On September 25, 1922 a fire gutted the entire block. A store, house, garage and restaurant were rebuilt on the site but everything except the store was destroyed during the fall of 1936.
