Piketon Purperos restaurant 1969 view

Bill Purpero, coming from Chillicothe, bought the former truck stop type restaurant 24 Sep 1963 from Clem Clemmons.  Clemmons was the original owner selling out to a Sparks and Dorothy who then remodel the place.  Clemmons bought back in and eventually bought out his partners. On opening night the water system failed and a complete new system put in. Quite a shock for a very young man just starting. Bill went on to add a 30' x 24" addition on the north side and eventual on the south side another addition to sell 18 cent hamburgers. The Chamber of Commerce use to hold their monthly diner meetings at the restaurant.  A fire in the 70s killed the restaurant and is now the parking lot for Bill's Ohio Candle Co. Inc.

I think the Grove is still going.

I remember in a barber shop in Waverly telling a story about Roy Rogers and a couple friends coming up to the Grove.  He said Roy who didn't drink stayed outside in his Car.

Nichols Pizza and Malt Shop

The malted milk shake dates from the 1950's and it is quite a tasty treat. In those days, there really were places called Malt Shops. They served Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Fries, Milk Shakes, and Malted Milk Shakes!
