About/History - Conrad & Theresa Grishaber purchased the land in 1920. They built a gas station in 1921. They ran it until Harold was out of the service around 1945-46. Harold and his brother Bob ran the gas station until he passed of an illness around the late 40’s early 50’s. Harold then took his other bother Paul in and they ran it together until Paul retired in 1973. Robert DeShaney, a son-in-law, who started there in 1955 purchased Paul's half after he retired. Robert is still working part time at the age of 75 (May 2015).
Harold and Paul started the car repair shop around 1946-47. We went through the gas wars and gas was rationed, that’s when we started to close on weekends and evenings. In 1990-91 the tanks were removed and with PICA Funds and our own money we took out the gas pumps which we then became a full service station. Some of the gasoline brands we sold were Cities Service, Atlantic Richfield, Citgo, Sinclair, Texaco, Arco, Mobil and 76.
