Hello everyone on this rather chilly day here in the north! By chilly I mean, it’s cold. With a strong cold wind. However, that won’t stop us from touring my town today. After all, this is all in the summer right now, so that will help us feel a bit warmer anyway. I think I may have already mentioned that this town follows right along the north shore of our lake so that makes the town rather long and narrow. But driving through the town it would look bigger than it is actually. So we will take another pictorial tour today, with some comments along the way.
Here is a picture of the Imperial Bank back around 1900.
Today the building still stands and houses a restaurant.
Here is a picture of the Hose Hardware from 1903. It was built from locally made brick.
And it also still stands today and is home to a pharmacy on the main floor and offices above. Bad picture, the sun was just over the building.
We also have modern buildings like this one built a couple years ago and we ended up with a new store to shop at.
In the same building, sort of, although this section was built back around 1975, is one of our grocery stores.
Here is one of two nursing homes that we have. It is a beautiful location but definitely not the better of the two nursing homes.
And last on our list today is the Clarion Inn, our tallest building in town. It was originally a Holiday Inn when it was built in 1970. It has changed ownership and names several times over the years. It just recently had a large fire under the building so will be closed for several months. That large gray portion along the bottom is conference rooms. The top floor of glass windows is a restaurant looking over the lake, a swimming pool is at the very top. It is actually built on pillars out over the lake, none of it is on actual ground.
I hope you liked our little tour today, have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
