Nate, in later years Seguine's expanded into a multi layered department store including about a half mile of coal and lumber yards. My mother worked there in the later years and as Cresco lost its train and became the wagged out tail of the Barrett towns it was quick to decline until a fire of unknown origin claimed much of the remaining buildings. The Seguine family attended our church and had its own dedicated row with earphones. As I remember, most were deaf as posts.
