In 1945 the Johnson Furniture Company purchased the furniture business of the Wilson-Altmeyer Company. A history of the business operated in this location by the predecessors can be found in another part of the paper. The Johnson Furniture Company, before opening for business, completely remodeled the store. The manager of the store, which is one of several operated in this area by the parent company, is Kenneth Mead, who has Quickly proven himself to be a public spirited business man. He has entered wholeheartedly into the activities of several local organizations. As a member of the Board of Trade he advocated many progressive moves for the betterment of local retail merchants. In the Lions Club, Fish and Game Club, and the Dansville Lodge, Loyal Order of the Moose, Mr. Mead has taken an active part giving generously of his time and ability.
