He moved his office to Summit St (currently Rocky Top Ice Cream) in 1964. The office later moved to 304 S. Market St, 143 E. Central Ave, and finally in 1989 to our current location at 135 E. Central Ave. Harvey. who retired in 1998 was joined by sons Audie Thatcher (who has since retired) and Brett Thatcher, who is the current owner.
