Meacham gets new storage unit business

Believed to be the first new business in Meacham in more than 100 years, Meacham Mountain Storage was opened to accommodate cabin owners looking to store their recreational vehicles in a safe place while they're away.

MEACHAM — A collection of storage units represents a watershed moment for the hamlet of Meacham.

Co-owner Margo Herd recently opened Meacham Mountain Storage at 64183 Old Oregon Trail Road, a business she said is the first in Meacham in more than a century.

Despite Meacham’s sparse population, Herd said there’s a demand for storage services in the area.

With many vacation cabins in the area, Herd said part-time residents need a safe place to store their all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, and other valuables when they’re away.

“I know so many people who have lost things,” she said.

The first new business since Oregon Trail Store & Deli, according to Herd, the Meacham Mountain Storage offers ten 10-by-20-foot units and six 10-by-10 units.

Herd said security features include fencing and security cameras that operate 24/7.
