What would Dad think?

RE: Those were the days 60 years ago week of May 8, 1952 - "Denny Eaton of Eagle purchased nine Town of Eagle lots."

I wonder if my father, who built or remodeled literally hundreds of homes and buildings in Eagle and the Eagle River Valley over the years, including the original Eagle Clinic, the Serv U Shop (Allen Agency/ Kuttin Korner) and many others, was concerned as to whether he should develop these lots or not.

I certainly doubt it was his intentions to "ruin the small town character" for all of those who arrived before him. He never did really disclose if he made any money. Hmmm ... damn developers.
