Doyle Stauffer: More on the Moose Jaw building

Doyle Stauffer
Bellefonte, Penn.

I read an article online in the Daily about T-shirts and the Moose Jaw restaurant. It said the building housed dam workers during construction and came from Old Dillon. I think the building was a dry house for miners working on the Roberts Tunnel and came from the Dillon portal or from the shaft that was drilled up by Montezuma.

I lived near Old Dillon and in Frisco from 1959 to 2003 and remember it being moved to Frisco. It housed a lot of businesses in its time. Lots of history there. I enjoy keeping up with things in Summit through the Daily. I still miss my mountain home.
