Wilderman Company

Wilderman building.jpg


            In the early twenties, the Wilderman Company built a large block building 90 by 90 to sell cars.  This was a branch of the Marietta Company.  In 1928, John Eddy, Wayne Eddy, Floyd Cady, and Mr. Clark bought the building and continued to sell cars and run a garage.  In the front of the building they started an ice cream parlor.  Mr. J.F. Cady and John Eddy started a small gas station, and it continued until 1946.  It was the Newport Service Station (The Standard Oil Company).
