Char's Beauty Salon
(Chester Bowl)

Built in the early 1900's this building was originally a dance hall, owned by Jack Wardlow. In 1926 Leo Speegle bought it and in 1933 it became the Eastside Cafe. In 1945 it became a recreation center, known as the Chester Bowl. Around 1988 Char Armachea bought the building and it's now the home of her beauty shop, union offices and other businesses.
