Rising Sun Main Street and Hoosier Pete Gas Station

Rising Sun, Ohio County, Indiana Gas Station
www.historyinyourownbackyard.com In the 1920s a gas station was built in Rising Sun, Indiana at the corner of Main & Walnut known as Hoosier Pete. The successful station operated thru the 1970s serving the residents of the town and those passing thru on their way up and down State Route 56. After the station ceased operation in the 1970s in was transformed into a pizza restaurant called "Angelo's". Eventually Angelo's gave way to what is now known as "Rising Sun Main Street" a city based department which organizes events and promotes all activities. We would like to thank Rising Sun Main Street for supporting this video project.
