    The story behind the BAKERY sign?

    2008-04-05 - North Walk off the Square, Columbia, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
    "BAKERY" Mitch McKinley, Bowling Green, asked about this sign over the building next door to the Columbian Theatrewhere his family once lived, upstairs, when they ran the old M & W Auto Parts Store, there, some 50 years "What's the story behind it?" he asked. It seems that the building was built with post WWII optimism by entrepreneurs who thought it would forever be a bakery. Somehow the names "Willis" and "Ford" come to mind. Possibly the Willis built it and later rented it to the man named Ford. After the bakery, there was a duck pin bowling alley, whose most ardent customer was the late Gid Alley. It was operated by the late Arthur Waggener. Later the building was occupied by M & W Auto Parts with its Schwinn bicycle dealership, and Joe Johnson's Radio Repair Servce. Later still, it served as the Columbia Utilities Office and, some think, the meeting place for the City of Columbia Council. Later still, it was the House of Billiards, opened by Ralph Waggener and later operated by, among others, Bobby and Holland Loy, and others, and continues to this day as Moore's Pool Room and Lunch Counter, giving the building approximately 30-40 years use as a pool room and lunch counter. Comments, corrections, and related reminiscences appreciated.Clicking Read More accesses the "Today, Saturday, April 5, 2008" feature.
