Bennet’s Auto Parts
Bennett's Auto Parts
The first owner of an auto business on this location was G.L. Streetman. He operated a filling station and garage and also had the Dodge-Plymouth dealership. Mr. Streetman built the present-day garage building except for the section which houses the auto parts store. It was built by the Bennetts. The area occupied by the auto parts store was originally used to house the Grapeland fire trucks.
R.L. Bennett bought this business from G.L. Streetman. He had previously worked for Mr. Streetman in the early 1940s and when he moved back to Grapeland to retire in 1964 bought the business. The present-day owners of Bennett’s Auto are H.L. and M.R. Bennett. They have a well-stocked auto supply store as well as operate a garage for the maintenance of trucks and automobiles.
