105 West 2nd Street
Carl Stone was born in 1891 and raised at 386 W 2nd Street, the adopted son of Mary Melling Stone. As a child, he was doted on by Mary and her married children, some of whom had children Carl’s age.
Carl grew up farming and loved farming all his life. In 1909, at age 18, Carl left home and looked over land prospects in Wyoming but decided not to seek his fortune there.  At age 25 in 1916, he married Ettnie Butler in Ogden, Utah.
In about 1920 Carl and Ettnie bought a farm on W 2nd Street and lived in a humble cabin on their property for nine years. Carl loved the farming community on 2nd Street where he grew up. During these nine years, they built the house at 105 W 2nd with the help of neighbor and carpenter Joe Anderson. Carl farmed on the north side of 2nd Street and finished a large dairy barn before the house was completed. They moved into the spacious new house in 1929. 
In the 1920s there was a spur of the Oregon Short Line on the south side of 2nd Street that passed in front of all the houses on its way to Five Points. The slow-moving train was not a problem to Carl, but when he learned that future Wall Ave would be extended just east of his property, destroying his dairy barn, he traded his property to Mr. Jenkins for the old Chadwick farm in Slaterville in 1931. Carl and Ettnie left their brand-new beautiful house and barn and moved to an old house on the Slaterville farm.
“My father was the hardest working man I ever knew” his son Lorin Stone said. “He didn’t waste time on amusements. He raised cows, beans, tomatoes, and hay and worked for the irrigation company.” Ettnie served for a while as the president of Farm Bureau. In 1945 they retired, left the Slaterville farm to family, and moved back to 2nd Street, living in at 404 W 2nd Street, next door to the house where Carl grew up. 
The Jenkins family lived in the community for many years and sold the house at 105 W 2 in the mid-1940s to Clarence Hoopes and his wife, LaVerna Osmond. In 1947 the Standard Examiner featured LaVerna in the newspaper with a picture of record-breaking corn up to 14 feet high. In 1978 she was featured again as the grandmother of the singing Osmond family who lived nearby at Five Points.
