Wilcox, president of the "Hot Stove Society" - a gathering of men who spun yarns and solved world problems, retiring in 1891, he sold the business to M. Jacoby & Fred R. Sawday who advertised "first class goods at reasonable prices and square dealing with politeness thrown in." F.L. Blanc minister, carpenter & lumberman ran a mercantile store here from 1907 - 1920.
