Inscription.  From 1944 to 1999, this was the site of Woody's Market started by the late Woodrow W. Bowman.

The Over-the-Road-Restaurant, added in 1968, was a gathering place for the community. Woody's Market was a regional retail icon. After closing the Market in May 1999, Woody Bowman died on July 22, 2006. The Market was razed in April 2007.
