History Monday: Murray's Filling Station
By Mike Watson
New Filling Station to be Erected--Mr. Albin Murray is razing his storehouse on Burkesville Street, formerly occupied by Broaddus Grocery, and plans to build a filling station on that site right away. He plans to use the lumber from the building he is tearing down to build a residence on his lot next to the city cemetery, on Campbellsville Street. The filling station has not been leased as yet, though several people want it. Adair County News, 20 July 1932, p1.
Armstead Swope Broaddus, Jr. was operating his grocery and advertising in the News by mid-October 1929.
New Filling Station Completed--Mr. Albin Murray's new filling station on Burkesville Street is completed and the opening will be announced at an early date. This station is attractive in appearance and is ideally located, being just one block off the public square, on one of Columbia's busiest streets. Adair County News, 23 November 1932, p1.
