As with most buildings I post on this blog, there lurks a ghost story, conspiracy or some sort of mystery that I rarely write about for I don’t take enough time to get all the facts. This is drive-by shooting and not ghost mystery-1000. Perhaps I start a new blog when I have time to interview locals and sneak down into the basement to collect information. If you google E.A. Staley there you will find stories of the building and business over the past 84 years.
If you are ever in Decatur, stop and look around. It’s all about farming out there. Don’t get lost amongst the cornfields.
