Blast from the Past - Custer County Sheriff Building History

The present day Custer County Sheriff Building located on the corner of Main Street and Spruce has a long history in Mackay, Idaho.

Originally, way back at the beginning of Mackay founded in 1901, the building was Hendricks General Merchandise Store which later became the first location of the Stacy's Store (in 1919, Stacy's store moved to the Lost River Commercial building on the corner of Main Street and Custer aka Highway 93).

After the Stacy Store move, I'm not sure what the building housed, but at one time a mortuary was located in the building. Then, the building served as Mackay City Hall and later the Custer County offices. Today, the building houses the Custer County Sheriff office.
