Building on a Legacy
In 1933 Paul Baker and his son, Roy, constructed the classic stucco Shell Gas station. During their years of operation the business expanded to include auto glass replacement, mechanical repairs, salvaged parts and wrecker service. Bill partnered with his father, Roy, in 1961. He brought with him flat glass experience and the slogan “If It’s Glass, We Do It!” was born. An additional building was constructed at the rear of the property shortly thereafter.
Marcia and Dave Miller, Bill’s daughter and son-in-law, took over Baker Glass after Bill’s retirement in 1989. In 2005, the property underwent an extensive facelift. The refurbished 1933 stucco building now serves as showroom/office while an addition to the rear building doubled shop and storage square footage.
