This was the Old Scruggs Station. The Bagnall Branch Railroad ran right behind it. The railroad branch line ran from Jefferson City to the Bagnall Dam while the dam was being built. This building sat on the northwest corner of Scruggs Station Road and South Country Club Drive. It was a General Store for a while. (Amy Veltrop-Mueller)
