This corner has a colorful background as the site of a saw mill, grist mill, post office, grocery store, hotel, blacksmith shop, dance hall and until 1958 the Town Hall.

In 1847 Samuel Lattimer built a saw mill that operated until 1865 when it was converted to a grist mill. In 1876 the mill passed to Charles Elver. In 1877 John Lohrs build a two-story frame store and hotel opposite the mill. On September 14, 1878 a post office named Elvers was established here.
