Welcome! I’m Spencer owner and operator of Kenwood Tire & Auto Service in West Bridgewater MA.
The Kenwood Tire story started in 1963, when Ken Wood, a post-war entrepreneur, grew tired of selling tires and tubes from the back of his truck and started looking for a service location.
Discovering that the West Bridgewater Public Library building was going to be demolished to make way for the new high-school, Ken offered the Town of West Bridgewater one dollar.
They accepted his offer as long as he removed it. So on a cold December day in 1962, traffic stopped and townsfolk lined the streets as he moved the whole building about 1/2 mile to start up shop on South Main Street. Check out these cool pictures!
