The Morrisons

At various time, Johnny Morrison (right) owned a restaurant, an ice cream shop, and a motel in downtown Grant. He also owned a cottage at the end of Vanderstel Point in what is now the Geronimo 1 zone. It was frequented by his son Jimmy in the '40s and '50s. However, this picture is taken from the next-door Lampert dock, the background being what is now the Cherokee zone.

The Morrison cottage, which can be readily seen from the public access, was purchased by the Telder family of Sparta in the early '60s. Daughter Susie, along with husband Tom Wienczkowski, still owns it. Other daughter Judy lives up the street on Vanderstel Drive.
