Down Memory Lane

LANDMARK GOES – The “railroad” house located on the corner of Main Avenue and First Street was demolished by William Cummings, Inc. The six-room dwelling was at one time a doctor’s office and was also used by the railroad in 1926/27 when the line was being built to Headquarters. The house had been used as a home for the section foremen. Among railroad families who lived there were the Mike Bothells, the Pete Mangases and the Paul Baldwins. The latter were residents from 1958 until his retirement last year. The railroad has leased the land to Les Schwab Tire Co. Clearwater Tribune, Feb. 17, 1972
