Chinese Laundry Planned for Grantsville in 1901

D.E. Stutler has sold his parcel of land lying between High Street and Burrows run to Robert Geho for $80.  The purchaser will at once begin the erection of a building on it, just across from the Baptist church, to be used as a laundry.  The intention is to put in a steam laundry soon, but for the present it will be run by Chinese.  It is expected to have the laundry in operation by the middle of May.  Thus the new enterprises come this way, and Grantsville will be a city before we know it.
