1942 Haist House
Some of my updated information received from a long-time resident is that the building (now house) at the northwest corner of Power Street and North Grand Avenue was known as the Haist House. In a 1922 surveyor's map, this information is shown:
In the early 1900s, the feed barn and auto storage area shown on the map was quite possibly one of the ten-cent barns in the village. Farmers and residents in outlying areas could travel into town then shelter their horses and wagons in a barn while shopping, visiting, and doing any other business.
Anytime you are interested in doing genealogy research, I would suggest www.familysearch.org. It is an easy site to negotiate through and has quite a bit of information. If anyone does know more of the Haist family, I would love for you to leave a comment or e-mail me.
