In 1972, the town of State Center became the beneficiary of Mr. J G Gutekunst and his wife, Angie. In a generous will, three farms and a beautiful house and grounds were bequeathed as a city library. The house was built in 1924 as a home for John and Angie Gutekunst. John was an attorney and very active in city government. Angie was active in community service and an avid gardener. Their portraits hang in the main room of the library.
