Beer Bottle Garage
Annie Tarr stands dressed in traditional pioneer attire in front of the family home on July 24, 1942 prior to the Pioneer Days Parade. The home in the background was build by her husband, Jacob Tarr, in 1913. The home was constructed of stone gathered from the remains of the Franklin Hayes Beer Warehouse. Originally, Annie's husband wanted to build the entire home out of beer bottles and concrete. Since Annie was a devout Mormon, she wouldn't allow it. Later, Annie's husband went ahead and built the garage, which can be seen behind Annie in the photo, out of beer bottles he gathered from local bars.

Built in 1913 from Mason Blocks from the Franklin and Hayes Brewing Company. The brewing company had been built in 1894 on 1st St. It had to be torn down to make way for the overpass. Since the building blocks were of such good quality Mr J. E. Tarr was smart enough to build this home with them. The original cornerstone had “REBUILT 1913” added to it. It stands tall and proud as a show of ingenuity. It has now belonged to David and Alice Grosso for the last 20 years, who have chosen an auction of the property to allow everyone an equal opportunity to own this amazing place. A must see! Home is featured in books like “Back in Time, A Bannock County Collection” by ISJ.
