  1. I don’t ever remember it being a morgue, however my Great Uncle, Ben Kiehn was supposed to give the dedication speech when the building was built, but they had his funeral in the gym on the day he was supposed to give his speech. He was killed in the bank next door while in a shoot-out with bank robbers. Thanks, Billy Kiehn.
