Owners of the realty company, Amber and Brad Bender, recently purchased This Old Bank building on the corner of State Highway 87 and Main Avenue from Kevin Ketter. The historical building caught the Acorn Lake residents’ attention, as did the prime location on the busiest corner in town. “We picked Frazee for our office location because there are real estate needs here,” Amber said, noting the last time she checked there were 29 properties in the Frazee area listed.

The planning commission works with zoning issues and planning for city development, as well as approves building permits and interim […]
