The Yarnelle Lumber Company burned down today

And a post from July 2011:

We stopped by the lumber yard (actually, the Yarnelle Lumber Company) when we were in Wabash to visit my grandma. Uncle Ken (my mom’s brother) and his wife Jill pretty much run the place by themselves (it’s been in the family for generations). Wabash has big box stores and Home Depot now but the lumber company has survived, a triumph in itself in my view.

Art got to ride the conveyor belt in the lumber yard, something I remember doing when I was Art’s age. It’s SO FUN!
