From approximately 1946 to 1954, my dad managed a Chevron Oil gas station on the southeast corner of Main and 1st North here in Preston, Idaho. As of this composition, the Southfork Hardware store does good business at that location, but prior to that, it was the Anderson Lumbar business.

As a funny sidenote, Anderson Lumber was the source of those wooden yardsticks my mom used to paddle my behind. When she would go into their store to request another freebie, Ace Beckstead, the manager, would smile and ask, “Todd been acting up again??!” Thanks, Ace! JOB WELL DONE!!
