Ford Service Station - 1919

Built in 1919, this building was the first gasoline station in Springboro and served as the bus maintenance facility for Springboro Community City Schools from 1945 to 2001. This shop replaced the home of Mahlon Wright, a son of the village founder Jonathan Wright. Mahlon Wright served Springboro as a state legislator and a postmaster. He was a partner with his brother Josiah in a general store located at 245 South Main. His house was a "station" on the Underground Railroad, a place that offered assistance to runaway slaves during their flight to freedom.
