Pierce Station

Zadok Pierce established his station in 1875 and opened a hotel, grocery, and feed store. Pierce Station was a competitor station to nearby Wellington Station, and throughout its lifetime has housed a dance hall upstairs, and served temporarily as both a schoolhouse and a post office. In 1903, it was sold to W.E. and Gould Reading of Bodie and the name was changed to W.E. Reading General Merchandise. In 1945, the Reading Store was purchased by Perry and Gerry Aikens. The name was changed once again, this time to the Heyday Inn, which it remains today. In 1983, the Heyday Inn was remodeled by William and Sherri Carlson and John and Marilyn Ithurburu. It remains open today.
