This circa 1880 storefront and home was built right before the railroad came to town making Glen Haven one of the largest shipping points for livestock between Saint Paul and Chicago. The general store must have been a busy place in its heyday. The two bedroom home above the store still retains lovely woodwork, but it needs work, and a shower apparently will need to be installed.
As the trucking business grew and transport by train declined, Glen Haven, originally named Stump Town, became almost a ghost town. Today, the population is 400 residents, and the town is more known as a farming community and a spot for relaxation and escape.
Your chance to pick up where the current owner left off. This circa 1880’s Boomtown Architecture offers a main level store front space which has endless opportunities including additional living space for the above quarters.
