50 N. 1st St. Carquest/Cenex Automotive / Salzer Lumber
At the present site of Cenex repair and Carquest Auto Parts stood, a century ago, a large full-service lumberyard that serviced Ellendale with high quality lumber and specialty construction items. Salzer Lumber was a well-established chain, with sores in numerous North Dakota communiti8es. Their advertisements in the Dickey County Leader suggest that they were appealing to an upscale market.
Salzer Lumber is prominent in the panoramic photo of Ellendale in December 1914. It was one of several prominent lumber yards that serviced Ellendale in its early years.
