HUDDLE’S GROCERY in BUSINESS 30 YEARS
Was Known As Clover Farm Store
In the building built by attorney L. A. Riley, who had his law office upstairs and rented out the street floor to Tom Murphy for a butcher is where Huddle’s Grocery is today, 222 Van Buren Street.
About 1920, the business was taken over by Ray Murphy and in 1923, Paul Huddle started in working there until 1926 when he went with the S and K market at Clinton, Iowa.
Then in May 1927, Paul married a teacher by the name of Audrey Brown and the couple moved to Beloit, Wisc. where he was placed in charge of the S and K market of Beloit.
Horace Baker finally purchased the meat market that same Fall and he persuaded Paul Huddle run it for him. That was a good deal and Paul returned from Wis. and he has been here ever since.
