Did You Know… this business, and where it was located? This is Wheelwright’s Service Station, located at the corner of Second and Otley. This was a full-service gas station, one of many I remember as real gas and service stations.


This was where you got gas, an oil change, tire repair or a tune up. This was not a general store, no groceries, donuts, or pizza here. What you got was an employee in uniform who came out, filled the gas, washed your windows, checked the oil and air in your tires.


I miss going to the Whiteway, Don’s or Royer’s, to name a couple. These were local Perry businesses, not the chains that we now use to get our gas.
