1. 66 Main Street Marker
Inscription.  This building was built in 1926 after the Main Street fire. Originally it was a Chinese restaurant owned by Sun and Moy Kow. Later it became a cantina/dime a dance hall run by Joe Kum You and Joe Gung. It was common knowledge that some dancers were sporting girls plying their trade. Subsequently there were several owners until it was all but abandoned. The Andersson family purchased and renovated this building in 1978. It is believed the spirits of prior residents still stand guard within this structure.
