Oscar Dally's carFrom Lou Gramsey:

I have Dolly’s car. He would drive Margaret to school some days and pick my dad and aunt up on the way. My mom could remember him driving that up to Minneapolis on Thursdays. He would pick up his supplies there. A few years back Rosemount had its all class reunion and my aunt was the oldest alumnus. I drove her around the football field before the game.

Ackerman's Furniture RepairLocated on Highway 13 - Since 1895, Ackerman’s has been a trusted name for quality furniture repair, furniture refinishing, and furniture reupholstering. In each of their three locations — Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Chicago, and Denver.

Ackerman’s Furniture Service is the leader in fine furniture restoration. Being involved in furniture has always been a part of our lives.

From their website:

Our great great grandfather, Daniel Gephart, started a furniture business in Lakeville, Minnesota in 1895. In the 1940s, Ackerman’s continued this tradition by establishing the largest furniture showroom in the Midwest along Freeway I-494 in Bloomington. After leaving the retail industry, the next generation of Ackerman's transitioned into restoring furniture.
