Our History

Starting with the original grand opening of the Camden Shell Service station in 1964, Bledsoe's has been the center of activity and a long-standing community business.  Folks of this small hometown lake community, can tell you stories of spending their time after school working on their vehicles with the use of tools and the lifts at Bledsoe's.  Their descriptions of fondly remembered activities are centered around this community hub and bring you to the belief that there are businesses that still truly care.  Some residences will tell you stories of how Bledsoe's was there when they needed a tow in their time of need.  Like the Cabin move below.  Whatever the story, they all have described more than just a service station.

Please be sure and check out the photo gallery and tell us all about your fond memories. Just email us through our contact page.

Below are some points of history at Bledsoe's:

•  Original opening:  Kenny Bledsoe and Charles Anderson, Founders in 1964

•  In 1977, Jim Dulle and Kenny Bledsoe became partners in Super Muff Exhaust which shared the facilities at the present location.

•  Around 1982, Kenny Bledsoe and Jim Dulle became partners in Bledsoe's and Super Muff.

•  In 1990, Kenny Bledsoe sold his interest to his son John (Pug) Bledsoe. And now, Jim Dulle and Pug Bledsoe run the present day Bledsoe Automotive Service.
