1-1/2 miles east of Excelsior on Excelsior Blvd. In about May 1926, William L. Millington of Minneapolis bought the Vine Hill Cafe. Bill had previously been in real estate. Ad below dated May 21, 1926. Possibly a “chicken shack” so prevalent during Prohibition; an excuse for a set-up place? That October he added a Benzo gas station. I have the feeling that this is the building at 19215 Highway 7 in Shorewood. Hennepin County dates it at 1966, but it has tin ceilings and old wood floors.
