W. Johnson. This was nearly 70 years ago— in 1870 to o C F'^ r xF J °f h nso ^ sold t° O'Neill & Getty, who in 1894 -?u i ^^ orton - Thus the Norton name has been connected^ with building operations in.Algona for nearly a half cen- i There are few buildings in Algona that do not have some of the merchandise sold during the last 50 years by the concern. borne of the lumber that was sold in the olden days was native, cut and planned by local men for Mr. Norton. Old timers in Algona will recall that our present plant is a combination of several former yards. Our East Lumber Shed was moved up from the Northwestern tracks. Our west shed was a part of the old North Iowa yard that stood just south on* the corner across from the Legion hall. This North Iowa Yard once was owned by J. W. Wilson and stood on the Iowa State bank corner. Wilson sold out to the John Paul Lumber Co llie west section of our yard once was occupied by an old livery stable. Some of the old carpenters and builders of the past days were J. D. Shadle, O. W. McMurray, Ed. McMurray, Gill McMurray, N. C Kuhn, Peter Purvis, Abraham Wolfe (who built the Congregational church), S. R. Plummley, Jas. Cowan (father SJ-?L ^^w^)' G eorge Williams, Jake Nelson, and D. J Mitchell. Old time stone masons were Mike Johnson, Erick Nelson Alf- u T? T . ^ scar Norman - Old time painters were James' Orr H. P. Lmdsey, and Sid Cotterall. •Later day builders included Andrew Seastrom and C Herman, now retired, but active and about on our streets. There are a host of younger builders and carpenters and such names as Cowan, Johannsen, Hansen, D a i 1 e v McMurrav Rammer, Bartholomew, and Miller, and many others whom we all know, with a host of painters and other tradesmen We will not try to enumerate them all. In the early days lumber came from the Northern Woods of Minnesota and Wisconsin-white pine. Today fir himbei comes from the Pacific Northwest several thousand mile? bv rail; yellow pine from the Southern States; oak from Arka£ .sas. In fact, where once small stocks were carried, today immense stocks of lumber are carried. Today, a lumber or building supply store is more than aplace to buy lumber We cemenVbrick, steel, plaster-in f act everything to build them * We sel1 We maintain apian service, a finance service, a building service with our fine building contractors. -A cooperative snMt is ours to boost and build in the present, as we hS^ fee part A Today we maintain a fleet of Red Tinicks to render m-omnt service, Ous is a cooperative service, * e ™er prompt Call and see o\ir window of old time things.
