Twenty-five years ago...
50 years ago today, 1955: A modern shopping center costing in excess of $1 million was being proposed for the Urbandale area by a Kalamazoo developer. A supermarket would be the major unit in the center.
100 years ago today, 1905: A new $3,000 brick chimney at the Nichols And Shepard plant was completed. It was a lofty affair, towering 125 feet in the air, and was 11 feet at the base, seven feet at the crest.
