The Alder Store (around 1946) serviced folks not only in Alder, but those headed up to to Mount Rainier.
Much of Alder was moved or taken down when the dam was built and the area was flooded. This store, however, was built after the flooding and was owned by Carl Rotter and his wife Veora (Rathbone) Rotter.
