1. Site of Rock Store Marker
Inscription. On this strategic site, J.W. Boardman built a rock building and constructed a mercantile business. McLane Road, going north along the property, was the road to Pine and points north and west. The store was gutted by fire in 1938. Refrigerator boxcars were placed on the site in the early 1970s to warehouse groceries for local distribution. In 2001 the Town of Payson purchased the property for this historic park.
