Did You Know…

Larry Vodenik - Special to The Chief

Did You Know… what is shown in this photo? I posted this very early photo of Perry in a prior article. I have been asked for more details. Sorry but this photo is from the era prior to there being a newspaper in Perry. With no paper, details are hard to come by. We do know that J. D. Pattee had his store that some accounts say was located near today’s Pattee Hotel. There are other accounts saying it was where our Library is today. The Willis Family and the Pattee Family and J.W Otley were the force behind making Perry a town. When Perry did get a newspaper, the history of our town was documented and not just remembered.
