Around 1932 Deronda "Chum" Crandall and his wife Eva began operating a gas station and a grocery store at a major highway intersection a few miles south of Traverse City. Over the years the intersection became known as Chum's Corners. Chum sold the business and retired in 1953, and died in Traverse City in early 1959.[3]
