Endicott Village Life Visit #11 The Businessmen of 1900 Part 2

By 1900 Endicott was a village of a few hundred people and there were farmers and ranchers scattered across the surrounding countryside. They needed a place where they could conduct their business without taking up a good part of a week. Endicott was the place.

Last week we learned of some of the businesses listed on the map Pearl Rickey gave to Polly Gasper. This week we will learn of more businesses and where they were located according to todays street names and block numbers.

You will notice by reading last weeks information and this weeks information a lot of businesses could be squeezed into one block. Each lot was only 25 feet wide. Just take a look a Vaughns old store building. Not too wide!!! To see what an actual plat map of Endicott looked like in 1900 to the Fairbury Public Library as they have a 1900 Plat Book. You can see what the street and lots looked like.

Tri County Lady Trojans Denied Sub-District Win

Tri County concluded the season by being swept by Southern last Monday evening in the C2-1 Sub-district Volleyball Tournament at Auburn High School.

Southern was victorious by scores of 25-12, 25-19 and 25-14.

Tri County Lady Trojans volleyball coach Kelly Smith felt the team competed hard but had too many mistakes which handcuffed the team.

We had to change up our lineup a bit due to a couple of players gone for other school activities. The first set we had mostly freshmen and sophomores playing on the court. They handled it and did what they were supposed to do, we just came up a little bit short, Smith said.

In the second set, Tri County built a 5-2 lead early on and were within a point, 15-14 on Southern, before mistakes by Tri County, coupled with ace serves by Ashley Meints extended Southerns lead to 20-14.

Tri County would be unable to get any closer as Southern won the set by six points.
