Summary Of Lot 3 Block 2: During the six months that Benson Davis owned Lot 3, he constructed a fairly large two-story barn on the West 50 feet of the lot. The barn was built in the summer of 1878 and functioned as a multi-purpose building. The lower level was used as a workshop and horse barn while the upper level was used for storage and perhaps even a dance or two. In 1895 the Wieden Family who owned the property at that time hung out a shingle which said “Livery Stable and Dray”. So the barn became officially a place where people could come and rent horses and carriages which would take them to their place of destination. The barn was used as a livery stable for about 25 years. The property was owned by the writer’s father from 1941 to 1947 when he sold it to Henry and Alta Erlei. Henry Erlei a long-term machinist and inventor transformed the barn into a blacksmith shop and it was never the same again. Alta Erlei will be highlighted in separate and future writings as this very talented woman contributed much to humanity while asking nothing in return. The barn was razed during the 1960s as it became dilapidated and was a haven for all kinds of animals and birds. Today on Lot 3 sits a large attached garage which is capable of containing four automobiles and is undoubtedly the largest residential garage in town. Today the property is owned by the Schauer Family along with Lot 2.The property has exchanged hands 17 times beginning in 1875 and extending to the present day (2006).
