History of Business: Anton Aasand purchased this property from Jacob Klev in 1916. It was a hardware store. When Anton installed a 32 volt Delco electric plant in his store he strung a wire across the road so the church could benefit from the electric plant. It was then that the kerosene lamps in the sanctuary were converted to electric bulbs. Later on Anton rented this place to Rudolph Peterson. It was used for a garage until it was destroyed by fire in about 1932.
