Continuing Core Values in a New Location
Villaume Box and Lumber would soon be leaving its historic location. Ever since the big flood, St. Paul had wanted to make changes on the river flats. New dikes were planned and the design for a new Plato Avenue would take a large chunk of the company's property. Villaume’s purchase of 16 acres on the Milwaukee tracks in Eagan went through. By the end of the summer of 1970, the new building had been erected and fitted out. After more than eight decades on the river flats, the corporation would now be located at 2926 Lone Oak Circle.
