The Town of Sage

Here it is--the town of Sage! This is the Northeast corner of Benton Rd & Sage Rd. which was the location of the "town" of Sage. This building used to have a gas pump in front of it so was probably a general store of some sort. This photo was taken by my handyman back in 2002. The buildings no longer exist, having been torn down a few years back. I have been told that Sage Road was not paved until late 1950's or early 1960's, which was way after these were built. Benton Road to the west of Sage Rd. was widened, straightened, and paved in the late 1980's. Benton Road to the east of Sage Rd. is still dirt and badly washboarded due to heavy use. Now the four corners of Sage are mostly empty lots with old building foundations still there in their lonely glory.
