In 1948, a lumber company was
opened on East Main Street in Flat River, the Lead Capital of
the World. Unfortunately, within ten years only low grade lead
remained, market value had dropped, few miners remained, and
Flat River was designated as a depressed area. But the
townspeople refused to give up on Flat River, and by 1966 the
town had made a dramatic comeback. Flat River was designated
an All American City.
in 1977, two local businessmen purchased the old lumber company, owning it jointly for two years until one of them, Crockey Peterson and his wife Kathryn, bought out the partnership. This was a turning point for the ailing business, and much like the town, the start of its comeback.
In 1980, the old building was torn down and a new, much larger building center was built in its place,
The Flat River Building Center.
Today, the old town of Flat River is part of a larger community called Park Hills, but the Flat River Building Center name remains. Both are enjoying exceptional growth and promise of a very bright future!
