County Commissioner Dennis Ryan and County Treasurer Mike Caplice ran the Pioneer Store, a general outfitting firm on this corner from 1867 to 1870. Their wagon driver, Allmeyer, was gravely wounded by a man named Cole on October 8, 1869. After a vigilante shot Cole, Sheriff "WIld Bill" Hickok intervened to prevent a mob from lynching him. Lt. Col. George Gibson, Commander of Fort Hays, had both wounded men taken to the Post Hospital, where they not only recovered, but also became "reconciled to each other...through the intervention of a Catholic priest." This corner was known in later years as Peach Tree Corner.
