Footnote 7 Olsen's Grocery

The building that housed Olsen's grocery still exists in 2021, though it has been turned on its axis and sits at an angle to today's Langlois Market. The store was owned and operated by Danish immigrant Andrew Olsen in 1918 and has variously housed a small grocery, barber shop, thrift store and likely other small enterprises. Andrew dabbled in other business ventures in Portland, Bandon, and Denmark (OR), his absence perhaps accounting for the series of owners that kept the little market running until 1949. In the 1930's, Otto Heckle also ran a small station with visible gas pumps approximately one mile north of Langlois.
