The Gem County Courthouse, which houses the County Clerk's office, Commissioners, Recorder's office, and the County Auditor, just celebrated their 75th Anniversary in September 2014. The courthouse was built in 1938 to give the small county a government building, since the previous courthouse burned in 1920. Architect Frank Hummel of Tourtellotte and Hummel designed the Art Deco building. The courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places on November 17, 1982. The County Courthouse hosted the partnership between the GCCC and the Gem County with a Ribbon Cutting which was held on Monday, December 15.
The partnership between the GCCC and the Gem County is a big step in making our Valley and our County known.
Emmett's Restoration Station was founded in 2012 by Michael and Rosemary Ball. They opened the shop because restoring old cars was a childhood hobby Mike did with his father. It had always been a dream of Mike's to make a living off of making true beauty come to life.
Originally, Emmett's Restoration was opened to restore the beauty of classic cars. Since the opening in 2012, they have expanded to all automotive/diesel needs to new and used vehicles. They provide a full line of truck, car, off road, tractor, and trailer tires. Their business also includes a motorcycle section that offers a full line of repairs off street, ATV, snow, watercraft, and motorcycle repairs. With a full line of Western Power Sports (Fly Racing) gear, parts, and accessories.
Michael and Rosemary's goal is to purchase an alignment rack and paint booth to help in completing the restoration of classic vehicles. Emmett's Restoration Station is all about customer service and having the shop complete with all of the right equipment helps in keeping customer service at the top of their list. "Customers come first with full and flexible options," says Michael.
