These matchbook covers for King’s Place are probably from the 1940s or early 1950s. My understanding is that three-digit phone numbers were only used prior to 1958. But I’m hardly an expert on the topic. Feel free to correct me.

  1. The original owner was my great uncle Roscoe King.. I believe it was originally opened in the 20s or early 30s because my Grandfather, Vivian Lee Grundell (Doll Baby) worked there as a teen and he was born in 1911 and left Eatonville probably around 1932ish to the Yakima Valley where he married, farmed and had my Aunt (1937) and my Mother (1939)… I have pictures of Kings Place Resturant and Garage🥳
