Following tradition, first to cross the threshold of the new Thomas Market was Harriet Chivers and Nell Hess.

Carved by Don Sipe from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, it is the trunk of a tree that stood in the rear of the Andersen/James residence for 125 years.

The house was moved to St. John and is now the home to Diane and Lee Hogan.
