The Blazed Trail Garage, located on the Lincoln Highway that went through Ligonier, was owned by Charles “Jinx” and Lucy Winebrenner. Their wrecker was the largest one in the area. It is said the big door was always open, and Jinx was always there. According to Mrs. Winebrenner, more fish were caught on the bench outside the building than on any lake around!
The Lunch Car Cafe, attached to the garage, was owned by William & Elizabeth Furkis for 23 years.
