Here's another business that was located in Three Springs in years past, Trego's backhoe. The last picture we posted of Wible Trucking was VERY popular and we appreciate everyone that commented and shared the picture. We had 39 shares of that picture alone!!
Here's something I'd like to try. If anyone has a picture of a local business that resided in Three Springs or Saltillo please share those pictures to our page. The pictures can be OLD (no longer in business) or current businesses we can add to our collection. Thank you to ALL for your support and thank you for your contributions to our site.

We'll see if Roy Stevens has any information on this to be sure but for some reason I think the plate he just purchased on eBay here not to long ago was the same name. Thanks for sharing! (Adam)

We found this 1910 plate among our parents belongings. States "Compliments of J. S. Wilson, General Merchandise. Three Springs, Pa". Does anyone have any info about this store, was it a predecessor to Parks Store in Three Springs perhaps? Thanks for the help.
