Lowell Marchant was the owner of the building. Previous to his purchase of the building and lumber business some ten or so years back it was owned by the Harmon Keeter Family and Estate.
I believe that Lowell is via Searcy County, AR.

Subject: [ARIZARD-L] Re: Marchant Building?
On Saturday last, the following appeared in the Baxter Bulletin, with
the headline, "Firefighters Use Unique Training Site" and written by
Amanda Rios, a Bulletin staff writer. The first few lines of the article
are as follows:
"Mountain Home firefighters train regularly for fires and other dangerous situations.
Thursday, they had a unique opportunity to train at the old and empty Marchant's two-story building on Arkansas Highway 5 North. The building will soon be torn down to make room for a four-lane highway."
Any of you Baxter County folks know who the Marchants were who
originally owned the building????.....Vera?......Bill?.......etc
