Do you recognize this building? Do you know for whom it was named? Do you have any favorite memories of it? If you have an answer, please email doyouremember@meadowcrk.com or call the museum. If you would like to stay anonymous, just let us know.

Last week we shared a picture of the Cone Motor Company. Berniece Cone’s Chevrolet Cabriolet is in front of the “Motor Repair” bay. Berniece was a High School senior at the time. This was a Case and Hudson dealership as well as a Chevron Service Station and repair garage. Grace Schuon Leidt remembers it as a Shell Gas Station owned by Joe and Alma Wombacher. The history book tells us that this was in 1953. Grace also remembers that there were apartments in the upper portion of the building. Currently the building, minus the repair bays, is a part of JB Tires.
