Lumber: Niobrara Lumber Company

The Lusk Herald, December 15, 1927


Bloedorn Interests Take Over Yards of Niobrara Lumber Co.

Lusk is to have a new lumber yard.

Charles and A.O. Bloedorn, lumber merchants, who operate yards at Torrington, Lingle and Yoder, in Wyoming, and at LaGrange in Nebraska (Wyoming) completed a deal last Saturday whereby they have taken over the real estate of the old Niobrara Lumber Company, across from the Northwestern Depot, and as soon as a stock can be secured, will open up another unit of their large business here.

The company will carry a complete stock of lumber for all purposes, builder's hardware, nails, coal, paints, and everything usually carried in an establishment of this kind. 

The Bloedorn boys come from a family of lumber merchants, and have grown up in the business. Their yards at Torrington, Lingle, and Yoder are among the largest in the state.

"We have been contemplating for some time on establishing a yard in Lusk," said A.O. Bloedorn last Saturday. "We believe Lusk is one of the coming towns in the state, and the future of this section of the state is particularly bright. We have come here to stay and intend to open up one of the best lumber yards in the state, and will carry a complete line of everything in the building line."

The new company will be open for business as soon as the stock which is now on the way can be received and the old Niobrara yards put into shape.
