Memory Notes from A Listener #1
Carl's Music Shop was at one time The Minot Accordion Shop and it was located where I Keating is. He sold Accordions and Guitars mainly and also gave music lessons for the accordion. (In the mid sixties, Carls Music Shop was located in the Flat Iron Building on Central Avenue).
On the East side of First Street there was B&B drug with a cafeteria below it and it had the most luscious carmel rolls in the morning!! On street side, one door down and up the stairs was the Minot Business College. In the mid-60's Minot Business College moved up on South Hill to what used to be a convent. Not sure when it closed It was owned by Lloyd Hansen. The convent was a Catholic High School for girls and also aBoarding School for Girls run by the Sacred Heart Academy. (This is now Apartments at the intersection of 3rd Street and 14th Avenue SE…. By Rosehill Cemetary).
