In 1948 Kris and Scotty Scott bought the property and opened a gas station and bar and restaurant they named Klub Klondike. The first Lakehead post office and library were located in the building. It is said that in the early 1950’s there was a brothel upstairs – construction workers and miners frequented the premises – the room still exists in the attic.
