When Boulevard’s founding father, Lester Wittwer, brought the first tractor to Santa Clara, Utah in 1948 he introduced a new era to their small community. He created more convenience and efficiency for his family and himself. He also provided the opportunity to expand his fruit and vegetable business.
What does it mean to be “first” in the service industry? For the guests of the Wittwer Motor Lodge in 1955, it meant more comfort. Lester had the first refrigerated air conditioned rooms in Southern Utah (no more swamp coolers) and provided guests with a beautiful heated swimming pool.
In 1987 Boulevard Home Furnishings began construction of their new Warehouse (then located in the St. George Industrial Park). A new type of construction was introduced to Southern Utah with “tilt-up” technology.
