Signal Station - Cherry and Lincoln Way

The Signal gas station celebrated its grand opening in August of 1941. The location is
at the corner of Lincoln Way and Cherry Ave and the building is still in use.
At that time, and for a number of years after, the main highway between the the bay area and all
points east went right through the town of Auburn. The Signal station was a busy place!


In 1951, the war was over and the Korean War was getting started. But Ralph Dasher
had served his country and was looking to settle down. Ralph bought the Signal station
from Robert Brown. Ralph had married Mary Sparks in 1949 and the entire town of Auburn
was in support. In the 1950’s my parents and Ralph were good friends. Both Ralph and
his wife were involved in civic matters and Mary was very involved in helping with the Auburn schools.
If I’m not mistaken Ralph coached little league too.


In 1957 I believe Sam Galbraith bought the station and it became a Sav N Sam’s!
Ralph Dasher bought the Associated Gas Station on Lincoln Way and Pine Street in 1857.
Across Pine street from the Travelers Hotel, (Hilda’s).
