In days gone by….
the Skandia House was a three-story hotel and boarding house, built in 1909 by the Olsen Brothers. The cement blocks used in the original construction (made on site) are still intact today. The Alku Cooperative Restaurant was located inside the building. During the hungry thirties, men riding the rails could count on filling their bellies here before getting back on the train. The boarding house was eventually sold and converted into a two-storey family home where the O’Neill family was raised.
And now today……
