Owned by Fred O. Grimes, Sr., Grimes Garage was erected in 1914 on the main highway between Dallas and Waco.  It reflected the early prosperity Hillsboro enjoyed as a major transportation intersection point.  Grimes Garage, credited with having the first wrecker service in Hill County, also furnished the first complete auto service for early vehicles throughout the area.
