G. B. Powers Sells Restaurant and Grove to R. H. Hicks, Who Will Enlarge and Improve Same

Last week G. B. Powers sold the Frogstool restaurant and grove at the overhead bridge of the Southern RR, just south of Walton to R. H. Hicks of Cincinnati, who with his wife will conduct the business in the future.  Mr. and Mrs. Burgess had the place rented but relinquished the business.  They stated they did a fine business at the stand.

Mr. Hicks will make extensive improvements to the property and arrange the tourist camp in the grove for the better convenience of the tourists passing this way.  He is an expert chef and with excellent cooking anticipates building up a fine business.  He will continue to handle soft drinks, sandwiches, ice cream, etc.
