The Moyers were Grand Junction pioneers who founded The Fair Store, which became one of the largest retail businesses in western Colorado. They used their wealth to help students, build roads, fund a YMCA and the construction of the Avalon Theater, and construct the original Lincoln Park swimming pool. But the good times did not last.
