Inscription.  One of the first businesses located on this site was the Hi-way Station, a gas station, grocery and small trailer park owned by the Charlie Bowers family.

Bowers sold the property to the McGee family. The existing building was originally constructed in 1962 and served as the Taylor Grocery, owned by Raymond Taylor. During the 1970s, the Ben Franklin Store and Kent's Pharmacy were the principal businesses at this location.

Bob Leighton purchased the building in 1992 and undertook a major remodeling to its current southwestern stucco and post style construction.
