Illinois Street wideing brings better view of Historic Noyes House.
The two-story building at the corner of Illinois and Minnie Streets was built by Fred Noyes in about 1911. Noyes owned a sawmill at the end of Illinois street next to the slough that bears his name. The house has been hiding behind a fence for years, and the nearly completed Illinois Street widening project took out the fence, allowing a more complete view of the house.
