Ellsworth area builder brings Martell store site back to life

Email

TOWN OF MARTELL--Dan Knutson can foresee a day when the former Thompson General Store in the heart of Martell serves a commercial business again.

Or perhaps the historic building could become a bed-and-breakfast, catering to the fishing enthusiasts who enjoy the nearby Rush River. Or maybe it could be a place where pop and light goods are sold to area visitors.

"I hope the real estate market holds up so I'm able to sell it," Knutson said.
