Mother said this building at the intersection of Cape Rock and Country Club Drives used to be called the Dollar Store. She thought someone named “Dollar” owned and operated it, but she couldn’t be sure.
A quick search of the Missourian in the Google archives came up blank except for a real estate ad dated June 19, 1946, for a “large lot on Cape Rock Drive located just across road from Dollar Store.” So, it was a prominent enough local landmark that it was used for giving directions.
I DID turn up a couple of other cool stories in that day’s paper that I’ll share soon. They deserve a little more research.
