A look back in time


January 3, 2020 - 10:09 AM

In 1965, Ballou “Stub” Heigele, pictured above, took over his family’s harness, leather and upholstery shop in the 200 block of South Street. 

Four generations of the Heigele family ran the business that was begun in 1904 by Stub’s grandfather, Phillip.

As a side note, Stub’s father, Ballou P. Heigele, brought Scouting to Iola  even before the Boy Scouts of America was formed as an official organization in 1910.
