Gates Businesses and Services, circa 1976-77

Over the pandemic, the Society fielded a number of questions about older Gates businesses, so when we found this list produced by Gates Public Library decades ago which was culled from the Polk 1976-77 Suburban Directory.  We checked copyright restrictions and found none, so we thought scanning this 23 page document would help our website visitors appreciate the changes in the Town of Gates. All this data is historic and this is not current information, so please do not call any of these phone numbers! Just a historic look back on businesses in Gates from 40 years ago for your trip down Memory Lane.
