MILLS D-X STATION IN WAPELLO

    Glenn Mills came to Wapello on September 3, 1925 from Muscatine, Iowa and has been in business here ever since that date. He started in the garage business at the corner where the Hardy Implement Company is today.

    His brother-in-law, Paul Louck was a partner in business with him and the garage was known as the Mills and Louck Garage which operated as such until 1929 when Louck left the firm.

    That was the date that Glen Millís son, Vernon because associated with his father and in 1933 they bought the building from Jim Guthrie and it was known as Mills Garage until 1941.

    This date marked the beginning of the Mills D-X Station which is so well known to the residents of this area and has been in constant operation by father and on for the past 15 years.
