Located near the intersection of Univeter Road and Hwy. 5 in south Canton, Howell’s Rest Station (also called Howell’s Restaurant and Gas Station) included food along with a couple of gas pumps. It began in the early 1950s and operated through approximately the early 1970s. Two sisters owned both it and the Howell Drive-In across the street. Up until a few years ago, the rusty gas pumps in front of the house could still be seen.
