Scales Home
310 East Sul Ross Avenue

      Mr. Shirley Scales and his wife Lettie, who came to Alpine in 1911, purchased this house prior to 1920 and owned it for many years. Mr. Scales established the Kandy Kitchen, a confectionary store, in Alpine. It was a favorite hangout for high school students until Scales sold it in the 1950s. The house was valued at $8,300 in 1930, twice the average for homes on Alpine’s north side.
