As early as 1868, the Carolus family was living and operating businesses on this plot of land.|
In that year, George Carolus operated a saloon on the corner.
It remained a saloon until prohibition.
Immediately, before this building was built, there was a Coryell Service station built on the corner.
F.S. Dillingham and Willis Weodman who had a Buick agency in the 1800 block of the Avenue since the mid-1960's,
had this building constructed for their Dill-Wood Motor Company in 1950
ACME Music & Vending has been in St. Joseph for over sixty years
ACME was originally located at 14th Olive Street
ACME provides a full line of Amusement, Vending, and Office Coffee services to local and out of state businesses, bars, manufacturing plants,
bowling centers, schools, and many other types of facilities
On a personal note, I purchased a high quality pool table from ACME a couple years ago, they had the best price I could find in a 100 mile radius,
plus they delivered and set up the pool table in my home free of charge. In my opinion, a great company to deal with
