February 21, 2020

The Sather's store in Scanlon was opened up in 1903 by Ole Sather, who was born in 1869 in Norway and came to America when he was 16 years old. He came to Scanlon when the town was a thriving young mill city and remained there after the Brooks & Scanlon Lumber Mill closed in 1909. Sather, who was also a postmaster and civic leader in Scanlon, passed away in 1929. The store continued on the corner of Washington and 29th Streets until 1958, when it closed. The building was demolished in 2000. These photos are from 1957. Photos contributed by the Carlton County Historical Society
