Welcome to Historic Galloway, The Current’s weekly feature that looks back through Galloway Township history. Each week we get a chance to learn or reminisce courtesy of Sarah Snow, librarian for the Galloway Township Historical Society, who shares information and early photos online and in print.
George Hoenes Sr. started his business, now a Galloway landmark, with a few visible (glass topped) pumps at the corner of Cologne Avenue and the White Horse Pike. He purchased the land in 1937, which had been his father-in-law's orchard. He built a garage and then a soda shop and by the 1970's was providing school bus services to Galloway schools.
The Galloway Township Historical Society and Museum is in the former John Gross residence in front of the municipal building on Jimmie Leeds Road. The phone number is 609-287-2440.
