G. B. Ingersoll was the Arrow Lumber of his day. In this 1911 ad that ran in the Eatonville High School Catalogue, he covers it call hardward, furniture, stoves, ranges and building materials.

He was involved in town business — attended the county convention, held office of Town Treasurer and more.

Unfortunately, Ingersoll experienced a major set back a few years later. In 1915, someone inadvertently set his store on fire, setting off what is considered Eatonville’s worst fire.
