Slab Alley, South Stillwater
by Bill Fredell
Slab Alley is named after large slabs of lumber that were trimmed from the outside diameter of the trees. These pieces were used in the construction of the homes in the photos. These structures on Slab Alley were the homes of mostly employees of the lumber factories in Stillwater.
Slab alley was a small part of what is now south Main Street. Slab alley was actually only two blocks long. In this story, more territory along south Main Street will be included beyond slab alley. It extends from Curtis Caves, south to The Oasis Café.
