Evolution of Main Street – Part 2
1905 – looking north from what is now Third Ave – on the west side of Main St. you would find the Law Office of Jim Johnson, Kallak’s Dry Goods Store, Roise’s Wardrobe Clothing Store, and Hawley Drug Store. Kallak’s Dry Good Store was located on the corner where The Wells Fargo Bank building is. There was a vacant lot or two between the Law Office and Kallak’s Store. On the east side was Rowan Furniture, the Bijou Theater (operated by the McCutcheon Brothers), Thatcher Printing Co, Cleven and Hanson Grocery and the Morrill Hotel (later renamed the Waverly Hotel). Also on Main St. in 1905 you would find power poles with 4 rows of overhead lines.
