About this Exploration:

This is the oldest business firm still operating under the same name on Main Street in St.  Francis.  Jaqua Abstract was opened on December 29, 1886.  As the U.S. government opened 33,000,000 acres in this area for development, R.M.Jaqua, a  county surveyor, became interested in real estate and land titles.  As land transfers became more frequent, records of filings became more important. 

Part of the original building was moved from Wano to St. Francis in 1888.  Sondra Bracelin continues to manage the business located at 109 West Washington.
