As of now, the top front is still old barn board, but there is a new, white metal awning where the old shake shingles used to be and below that, new, Cornhusker red, metal siding. Little by little, the whole front will have a new, fresher look.

The building on the right is W.F Hair's store. If you blow this up, you will see stairs on the right hand side leading up to the second story. The people in front are believed to be either Royal Highlanders or Modern Woodmen of the World. There is also a photo floating around out there of just the people. If you have one would you please share? And also, if you know the identity of the fraternal organization, would you also share that?
