Hand painted with whitewash on a basalt outcropping by an old old dirt road in the Dry Coulee is the Phillips and Welch sign. Located on what was probably once a wagon trail is one of the oldest advertisements in the Coulee. Phillips and Welch was a hardware and grocer that most likely sold some tack, feed and other supplies.
