The Ellis family ran the store at left until it closed in the 1970s. The second building from the left was a barber shop. The third building was an unsuccessful store, and then a laundromat. The fourth was the tannery, which burned in a set fire. The streets were paved in the 1950s. Still standing is the right hand building.
