Aslag Anderson, Norwegian born mill-wright, built this store and dock in 1858.

The dock served as the transportation center for this area from the sailing days through the steamship era in the 1920's.

On Anderson's death in 1892, two of his children, Adolph and Lizzie, took over the management of the store and dock. In 1952 the dock was acquired by the village. With the aid of the Ephraim Foundation, it was restored to its present condition.

This stone is erected in honor of Aslag, Adolph and Lizzie Anderson who made this dock and store so meaningful to Ephraim.
