Desert pioneer, Carl Lykken, built the first general store in the village in 1914. For many years it contained the only telephone and the post office. The store was remodeled with the existing overhang and arches when sidewalks were installed in the early 1930s.

Carl Lykken helped to establish the first Police Protection District and served on it board until the City incorporated in 1938.
