Yates Meat Market

A young Mary Yates Eicher climbs the steps to her father’s meat market in Apple Creek in the mid 1920’s.

Leonard Yates, her father,  owned a small farm in what is now the Dogwood Circle area where he slaughtered the animals before bringing the meat to his store on Main Street across from the Bank.  You can watch Mary tell her
story in an interview that she did with Sue Gochnauer here on this website.
