Jacob C. HATFIELD, Old Illinois Street School, First National Bank

[from the obituary of Jacob Cramer HATFIELD, EVENING HURONITE, Monday, 24 February 1936, p1c3]

He came here in 1882 and homesteaded 9 miles north and 1 mile east of Huron on what became known as the Hatfield Ranch.
Early Huron Contractor
For the first few years, he followed his trade, carpentry, and worked in Huron.  His firm, PARKER and HATFIELD, erected the first brick schoolhouse in Huron, the old Illinois Street School, and also the first brick bank building, the old First National which was operated by the CAMPBELLs and which stood on the present site of the Lampe Market.
