How did you get the name Harter House?
Great question; Here is what I know as a long term employee over 25 years and established from the first Harter House store located at Sunshine and Grant across from then K-Mart. Tony Harter and his father-in-law Charlie Shaup were the first to start Harter House. I believe Charlie was the meat man and Tony just learning. Charlie developed some leg problems after 6 months in business and had to quit or slow down. The business was sold to Jerry & Barbara Bettlach and the rest is history. Shortly Jerry and Barbara bought and moved into the Harter House on Campbell st. in the old Enyerts restaurant, now the Springfield Catholic Credit Union. ~ Dale Dothage
