Arnold’s Service Station

The name Arnold has been a mainstay in downtown South Whitley for a long, long time. Arnold’s Service, an automotive service business, has been in the same building at the three-way stop near the Eel River bridge since 1934. Larry and Ed Arnold own the business now. Their father had the present building built. The business was moved there from another location. As was the case with many service stations years ago, the Arnold brothers used to have gas pumps, too. Those were removed in 1993.

About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
