In April, 1947, Andy Taffeiren and his wife Lillian, (Lil), purchased approximately two acres on this corner from Earl and Helen Lewis.

At that time it was known as Andy's Place on the corner of the Plank Road and the 14th concession, Township of North Walsingham, County of Norfolk.

In 1950 the store was enlarged. Andy went out of the welding business and opened up a small lunch counter. Lil worked in the insurance office in Langton. Andy loved visiting with people and this corner was a great meeting place.

The property was divided into lots with one lot facing the Plank road. and four lots facing the 14th concession.

The original house was moved to the lot farthest to the east, facing the 14th concession, in 1957, with new living quarters being built.

As time changes everything, Andy changed to a drive-in restaurant in the year 1960, removing the gas pumps, and serving hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, drinks, etc. It was a thriving business in the summer time and allowed for winter time vacation
