Inscription. In 1916 Foster Stratton erected a two-story brick building on this site. It held a garage and machine shop on the lower level, with a photography studio and living quarters on the second floor. When the building was razed in 1989, the Stratton family deeded the site to the City of Wessington Springs to be maintained as a historical park.
