Carl Shaver a -Last week I mistyped some of the info on building #7. so here it is again. 7--Around 1950. arl Watkins' parents lilt a restaurant here. /ter they sold it. still in the 1950s, it became a medical clinic, and then the Post Office was added. The clinic moved across the street and west in 1959 into a new apartment building (#27), and the post office moved across to #27 at some point as well. This building (#7) was later remodeled and became the Kahili Club bar. - So, starting where I left off last week, here are more buildings. 14 Chester Irwin garage/ gas station. It burned one winter in the early 1940s and almost burned LaFay's pool hall next door. But the brick walls of the garage confined the fire, and the roof collapsed inward, saving LaFay's. A man named Callender from Cascade built a grocery store here in 1949. Hugh Crabtree ran it for bought it, and it operated as "Shaver's" until 2002 when Len and Sharon Yancey bought it. It is now called "Meadows Valley Market." 15 The original building here was a saloon that was moved from Meadows. Clarence LaFay bought it in 1920 or '21. In 1937. Clarence demolished the old saloon and replaced it with a new building on the same spot. In 1993 Bud LaFay sold it to Rick and Karen Burden who opened an antique store called "Beyond the Tree." They later converted it into a restaurant, bought the "Loadin' Chute" bar next to it and combined the buildings to form the Sagebrush BBQ." 16 Irwin Hotel---Noi Irwin had the hotel built. A few others owned it before the Jacksons. The Freemans bought it and put a bar in the front part of the building. Later, Bill and Wanda Ward owned it. Sometime after that, Danny and Ron Balbach bought it and tore it down, I've numbered a couple of the buildings in this photo replacing it with a new bar called the "Loadin' Chute." They built part of this structure on some of the space formerly occupied by the Sullivan store (# 17). The "Loadin' Chute" was later part of the expansion of the Sagebrush BBQ (# 15). 17--Jim and Cora Sullivan had a grocery and dry goods store here. They sold it to CaUender, who also sold it. During the time it was a store-- in the mid 1930s--Dick and Marie Wilson and their daughters, Marcia and Marion, lived in the apartment upstairs during several winters. The road to their ranch on Cemetery Road was not plowed, and it was too difficult for the girls to get to school from there. The building later became a bakery that was operated by Bill LaFay (Bud's cousin). In the mid 1960s a man named VonBrethorst ran an appliance and electrical shop here. Subsequent uses: Shorty Derrick's son ran a shoe repair shop, Orris Tinsley ran a saw shop, Portiener had a boot repair shop. The building was eventually torn down. 18--Roy Davenport built a restaurant and stage stop here. He sold it to Ida and Scotty McDonald who ran it as the bus depot This little shot was transferred from 8mm movie film taken by Dr. Thurston in the late 1930s or early '40s. This station was on the # 1 spot on the map. KATHERINE AVE VIGINIA S?

Now the area is a parking lot for Granite Mountain Caf6. 24--Clarence LaFay built a show hall here in 1934. After his death, Fannie LaFay sold it to Pat Patoray (Marion Wilson's husband) in the 1950s. The show hall had been used for basketball games, bowling, shows, movies, dances, roller- skating and community yard sales. When Pat Patoray acquired it, he started "Casey's Corral" which was a dance hall. (Casey was his son's name.) He held dances here with guest bands and people came from all over to listen and dance. Some of the bands: Hank Thompson, Buddy Knox and Dick Cates from Boise. In about 1962 or '63 it was closed and Patoray moved his family to Lewiston. After Patoray left, he sold it to VonBrethorst for storage. VonBrethorst was an electrician. He sold it'to Paul Clagg. The hall burned in October 1979. Clagg then built a pizza parlor/caf6 on this lot. Clagg sold it to Hal Cusick who owned it for several years. Cusick sold several times but got it back. He finally *$oi it to John & Darcy McDaniel and it is now called the Granite Mountain Caf6. 25--This was an empty lot until the 1960s when VonBrethorst built an appliance and electrical shop here. He leased the building and it was remodeled into the post office, which it still is. To be continued.
