Yes but not where I said it did. After more research I see they were on the east side of the current road.
The Cordes General Store constructed in 1910 burned to the ground in the 1940ís, but much of the original stage station still exists, incorporated within the walls of the old house. The gas station, which closed in 1971, and the weathered barn still watch over the road they served for sixty years. Henry Cordes, grandson of John Henry Cordes, resides in the family house. At the railroad siding, a small corral, sun-bleached concrete foundations, and the railroad grade are all that are visible.
