More History on the Current TriCounty Supply Lot Highway 93 and Elm

Mackay's Standard Gas Station on Highway 93. The building across Highway 93 (triangular front) was the Chevrolet Dealership owned by Herschel Collins circa 1930's. Then, Ray Greene moved his Ford Dealership to this building in the mid-1930's. Greene sold to B.C. Jones at the end of WWII and the Ford Dealership closed circa 1953. Al Blair moved his automotive shop here after that and sold to Wendell Voss who reopened a Chevy Dealership which closed in 1967. Wilmer Hansen had a garage in the back of the building for a period of time. The building sat idle for awhile. Joe Casebolt rented the building as repair shop. In the late 1970's or early 1980's, Ray & Peggy Kent bought the building and made the building in to a spa with a swimming pool and racket ball court. Milt Bulter leased a portion of the building . Finally, Delvin Hale had the building which had an antique shop in it before it burned August 29, 1992. Randy Nelson owns the ground in 2010 for the TriCounty irrigation equipment storage.
