Legal Co-op


In 1924, eight entrepreneurial farmers, a lawyer, and a merchant founded Legal Co-op. It began with $201.88. During its baby years, Co-op sold petroleum products to the area’s farmers. When Co-op bought Legal Mercantile (left panel) from Edmond Dozois in 1926, the business added general merchandise. The mural portrays the many people who worked there for a number of years.
