A little History
Originally the telegraph and pony express station, the construction of this building dates back to the early 1900s. in 1920 it became the Reese and Amster White garage and machine shop. Some of the brands sold here were Chrysler, Buick, Dodge and Ford. In the 40s it was then changed to a Shell service station servicing travelers on historic 89A from Phoenix to Flagstaff and Route 66, until the I-17 and I-40 came along. Sometime after this the Jerome volunteer fire department called this building home. Then in 1996 Eric and Michelle Jurisin owners of the "Haunted Hamburger" bought the building and opened a restaurant which is now known as Grapes Restaurant & Bar.
