Kezar Falls Village - Part 5

This was the center of the business district in Kezar Falls Village.  The large 3 story building was built by George W. Towle in 1886. Preston J. Stanley and son, Orman, bought the Towle building in 1900 and it became known as the Stanley Block. At that time the post office was located here with P. J. Stanley as postmaster. In 1910 George Towle and Allen Garner started the Kezar Falls National Bank on the first floor of this building.  This picture taken about 1915 shows the Norton Block built about 1910 to replace the old S.P. Fox building and they continued to sell grain and groceries.  Notice the Newbegin Cigar Shop (left) which is located at the end of the bridge.
