The Roseville General Store, shown here in the mid-50’s, was at its peak working condition.  The Koenigsfeld family car, a 1946 Chevy, was parked in its usual location.  It was purchased in 1953 to replace a 1932 Nash, we believe was a one seater.  As you can see in the picture there was gas available, an air hose for all to use, and an overhang to pull under during bad weather.  To the east of the store is an attached garage that most of the time housed feeds such as Larro, Honegger, and Nutrena.  You may remember the jingle on WHO in Des Moines that went: “Feed your hogs Nutrena, the best feed that money can buy!”
