MOHAGEN’S HARDWAREMOHAGEN’S HARDWARE
Mohagen’s Hardware has been a cornerstone business in Elbow Lake since 1932. It was founded by Lars Mohagen, then passed down to his son, Harold Mohagen. Prior to the Mohagen’s having a hardware store in Elbow Lake in the early 1900’s, that slot was filled by Johnson Hardware and Franklin Johnson who had a lumber yard, hardware store, cabinetry and funeral home business on the same location Mohagen’s Hardware stands today.
Now Franklin Johnson’s great-grandaughter and her husband, Sue and Bob Kulbeik, are the proprietors of the current Mohagen’s Hardware. They are a full service hardware store including – paint, plumbing and electrical, housewares, sporting goods, toys and games, building materials, and lawn and garden equipment. They also have a large garden center in the spring for a huge assortment of flower and vegetable plants.
