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.
