HISTORY OF SERVICE STATIONS
Probably Weirs Beach’s first “service station”, the Lakeside Garage was located on the north end of Lakeside Avenue, where the concrete patio of the the Big House is now. It was converted to several different businesses over the years. In the 1950’s, it was the Knotty Pine Grill (a restaurant). In the 1960’s, it was a dance club known as Teen Haven. In the 1970’s, it was the Weirs Beach Playhouse by night, and a bike rental shop by day. In the 1980’s, it became the nightclub “Nashville North”. The building burned down on October 3, 1985.
