Ridge Route House

A small Richfield gas station, garage and lunch counter located on the west side of the highway. Green and white sleeping cabins were available directly across the road in a grove of Pepper trees. The earliest date I have for this establishment is 1920 from an add promoting their garage, gas and lunch. A 1926 motor guide states: "Garage, reputed very fair." Porter B. Markel and his sister Ruth owned the station. The location today supports a large home with a red tile roof. It sits on a small knoll on the east side of the road.
