In 1920, the Witteman and Miller Coal and Feed opened for business and was operated by Ollie Witteman and Otto Miller, according to Lewis Garrison. The business was located at West Grant Street at the railroad tracks.
Their business occupied a 40×8 foot building where they stored feed, and building supplies. They had 140 feet of frontage on Grant Avenue with a side track that could accommodate eight cars, Garrison said.
The property was established as a partnership and in the yard the two men stored coal, sewer pipe and brick. Mr. Witteman was born and raised in Grove City; Mr. Miller was raised on a farm in the township.
