The years went by and people would open and close the business and the Tubaugh brothers owned it. We lived in Des Moines by that time, in the 1970s. My husband, Paul, and I decided we were going to see if we could find a business or jobs and sell our house and move back to Moravia. We hated the Des Moines school system and by that time we had visited Moravia so often with the kids that Paul felt very comfortable in my hometown. We bought the Corner Café in 1976 and never looked back. We had to get other jobs and eventually sell the building, but I never lost my feelings for the wonderful brick building that we owned, for a while at least.
