  1. Go to “Slabtown Chronicle” for a more accurate definition of Slabtown. The term dates back to the 1880’s. You would end up on a “slab” in this part of town.

  2. McMenamins is correct. A saw mill operator last name of Weidler opened a mill in the 1870’s. He began stacking “slabs” of wood around town. Thanks Ellott.

  3. I drive by here every single day on the way to work. When I’m stopped at a red light here, I try to imagine in my head what this building and neighborhood were like 80+ years ago.
