THE FORTON HOME IS BEING DEMOLISHED TO MAKE ROOM FOR THE EXPANSION OF VINCE AND JOE'S PRODUCE. THIS IS LOOKING SOUTH ON CANAL ROAD. IMPERIAL PLAZA IS IN THE BACK GROUND. THE HOUSE WITH THE PILLARS IS ALSO HISTORY. IF ANYONE HAS KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THIS HOUSE, PLEASE CONTACT THE WEBMASTER. THERE USED TO BE A DIARY FARM WHERE THE KROGER STORE IS IN THE IMPERIAL PLAZA. THE WEB MASTER KNOWS ABOUT THAT BECAUSE COWS WOULD JUMP THE FENCE AND END UP IN HIS BACK YARD. SHIRLEY FORTON SAID THAT THE BARN WAS HEATED WITH NATURAL GAS FROM WELLS. SHE ALSO SAID THERE WERE SEVERAL GAS WELLS IN THE AREA. OLD MAPS ALSO SHOW SALT SPRINGS.
